Emul Ross may be better known for his Pinots but he has a sensitive touch with Pinotage too. This concentrated, textured example has violet and vanilla spice aromas, bramble and blueberry flavours and appealing texture.

Raspberry and boysenberry fruit flavors are ripe and brambly in this well-balanced and expressive medium-bodied red, backed by bright acidity and lightly chewy tannins. Notes of dried fig, black licorice, graphite and thyme linger on the finish.
Southern Right is redefining Pinotage with this intense classically styled, clay-grown wine, packed with complex berry fruit, beautiful tannins and subtle wood spice. Full ripeness and the longer hang-time afforded by cooler sites, combined with the complex, more classic fruit aromas and structure resulting from clay-rich soil, make this wine a highly individual expression of South Africa?s unique grape variety.
