The 2012 Pinotage Stellenbosch, which is also raised in 80% new oak, has a little more vigor and opulence compared to the 2011, with orange-sorbet infused black fruit, a touch of creme de cassis and licorice. The palate is medium-bodied with a fine candied entry, lovely orange sorbet and marmalade notes with a touch of allspice and white pepper toward the finish. Lovely.

Enticing and well ahead of the Pinotage pack, with alluring blueberry, loganberry and raspberry fruit melded seamlessly with anise, fruitcake and ganache notes. Drink now through 2019.—J.M
