Man Vintners Pinotage 2010
"In order to focus on the generous fruit notes and full body, yet keep this softer and lighter than many Pinotages, we co-fermented a portion of the Pinotage with Viognier and blended in some Shiraz. Just a touch of oak maturation means the result is delicate and pretty, with beautiful red berry flavours, a hint of cinnamon and very gentle tannins." -Winery
External Reviews for Man Vintners Pinotage
Cherry-centric throughout with supporting elements of wild forestry, fennel, sweet spice and blood orange. The acidity is prominent but balanced within the round mouthfeel showing gripping tannins and an overall firm structure. Itrsquo;s approachable now and would pair well with fruit-stewed chicken or pork chops.
Dark fruit drives this wine, as aromas and flavors of rich black berry, plum and cherry laced with licorice root flood the senses. Round and full in the mouth but balanced with medium acidity that leads through the clean, lively finish. Drink now.
Medium red. Dark berries, plum and a whiff of woodsmoke on the nose. At once silky and juicy, with good intensity to the plum and mocha flavors. Finishes broad, with a fine dusting of tannins and a hint of chocolate.
This juicy red features a core of dark plum and blackberry fruit backed by a coffee hint. Just enough grip keeps this honest. Drink now.
This South African wine possesses deep blackberry tones complemented by a touch of vanilla and a smoky backbone. It finishes a bit earthy with a fine black cherry aftertaste.

The 2010 Pinotage is blended with 13% Syrah and 2% Viognier and is raised in a mixture of new and used oak. It has a fragrant, earthy bouquet with mulberry, briary and wild hedgerow scents, more natural than its peers. The palate is medium-bodied with supple, lithe tannins cloaked by redcurrant, strawberry and cherry fruit. It is sensual and harmonious with a caressing finish that is quite simply, delicious. This is a very fine Pinotage from winemakers Francois Bezuidenhout and Tyrrel Myburgh. Drink now–2015.
