Spioenkop ‘1900’ Pinotage 2019

R265.00

Koen was one of the early champions of rethinking Pinotage a few years ago, and this is his Stellenbosch example. It is super classic – properly dense purple and black fruit coupled with juicy acid, with lovely grip and some spice on the finish. One for the Pinotage fan.
Christian Eedes: Complex aromatics of red cherry, violets, dried herbs, spice, earth and a touch of cured meat. The palate is light yet intensely flavoured. Pure fruit, lemon-like acidity and fine tannins, the finish super-dry. 94/100.

Belgian native Koen farms a hilltop in the middle of Elgin WO he planted to vines in the early 2000s. A qualified engineer and former sommelier, he has a very clear vision for what he wants to achieve. His wines reflect his European heritage while still reflecting the terroir of Spioenkop. The two new single-site Chenin Blancs are particularly interesting – the ‘Sarah Raal’ is from ferricrete soils and the ‘Johanna Brandt’ is from shale. Brilliant, fine examples of cooler-climate South African Chenin Blanc. Both the Riesling and Pinotage wines are among the best in South Africa.
