2013 Pieter Cruythoff Middlepos Pinotage

Estate: Riebeek Cellars
Region: Swartland, Coastal Region, South Africa


Tasting Note:January 25, 2016

Tasted this over two days, it needed day two. On day one it was very tight on the nose and palate. Very dry shortish finish. Moderate plus tannins (7.5/10) with 3 hour decant. Day two (91). Ruby red. Light red cherries, a few floral and herbaceous notes. Very relaxing and soft. Moderate and smooth tannins (5.5/10) thicker and fuller body than day one. Definitely opened up a lot more. With a moderate plus finish. Lots of red fruits like cherries and a little savory.
