Spioenkop Pinotage 2021


Along with the Riesling, it has been the Spioenkop Elgin Pinotage that has shaped Koen’s and Spioenkop’s international reputations for years.

“Koen Roose likes to do things a little differently, which is why he makes Pinotage in Elgin, well outside the variety’s comfort zone. Youthful, stony, fresh and intense, this has some stony reduction, flavours of cranberry, raspberry and pink grapefruit and beautifully judged tannins.”
Tim Atkin 93/100

“Top notes of herbs and floral perfume before red currant, cherry and cassis. The palate shows pure fruit, racy acidity and powdery tannins – complex and exact. A lot of wine despite an alcohol of just 12.5%.”
Christian Eedes, Winemag 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.
