  • Umkhulu Pinotage 'The Big One' 2002

    Snoothrank:

    Definitely took some getting used to, but by the end of my glass I was singing its praises! One of the few times I can recall being really surprised by a wine. I'm not even sure how to characterize the flavors except original. Read More

  • Umkhulu Pinotage 'The Big One' 2002

    Snoothrank:

Plenty of the mint that South African wines are famous for on the nose, along with some bananna walnut bread. On the attack -- which is very smooth -- is some more of th... Read More

  • Umkhulu Pinotage 'The Big One' 2002

    Snoothrank:

    Intriguing nose of plums, eucalyptus and oak. In the mouth an attack of surprisingly strong tannins, but its counterbalanced by minty notes, fruit and vanilla from the oak. A slightly barnyard and mineral finish. Good. Read More
