Tasting Notes

An expansive nose shows wild lavender, both red and black fruit, and a hint of tar. Well integrated oaking on this stylish Pinotage. Big and bold palate lifted by a spine of bright acidity that allows freshness on the lengthy finish. Filigree, durable structure will allow for long, rewarded ageing for up to 10 years comfortably.

Food Pairing

Serve with game birds like pheasant or quail, and also delicious with venison sausage dipped in Hoisin sauce.

WE ARE IN THIS TOGETHER

In recent weeks we have seen the increasing impact of the Coronavirus (Covid-19) on individuals, families, businesses, societies and countries around the world and here in South Africa. At Windmeul Cellar the safety of our customers and staff is paramount, therefore Windmeul Cellar will be closed as of 12:00pm today, 24 March 2020.

Unfortunately we will not be able to deliver online wine sales for the time being. You will still be able to make online purchases, but deliveries will only be fulfilled after lockdown - 16 April 2020

Thank you for supporting Windmeul for so many years. While on lockdown we hope you will be able to enjoy a nice glass of Windmeul wine.

We look forward to welcoming you back, but for the time being it is our sincere hope that you and your families stay safe and well.
