This wonderful, fleshy Pinotage made by Springbok rugby legend Jan ‘Boland’ Coetzee, the proprietor of the Vriesenhof estate in the Paradyskloof Valley, a stone’s throw to the south of Stellenbosch is now available from the 2012 vintage. This South African red wine has a broad mouth-feel with flavours of raspberries and cherries and hints of tobacco smoke on the nose. The well-integrated oak offers cinnamon and clove spice becoming more intense as the wine breathes in the glass. The finish is quite rich and long.

Mark Savage, Master of Wine, remarks:
This is an ego-free zone, an oasis without pretentions, a farm with an innate respect for nature in general and its rich shale soils in particular, where wines are made with minimal intervention and the goal of individuality. “Wine is not about the winemaker” comments Jan, though it has to be said that it is his spirit that provides the inspiration for the excellence of these wines. The Vriesenhof label is a reflection of this man's passion and dedication in that it remains uncomplicated and a natural expression of the grape and place.
