Spier 21 Gables Pinotage 2016
Spier 21 Gables Pinotage is named in honour of the Spier farm’s 21 architecturally significant gables – the most on any wine farm in South Africa and all meticulously restored.
Deep ruby red colour. Beautifully balanced and intensely complex. Concentrated flavours of caramelised black cherries, dark plums, dark chocolate, and hints of tobacco and oak spice. The full palate is smooth, with a fresh acidity and firm but velvety tannins. Enjoy it at any point, but know that it is only going to get even better over time.

Big, bold, dense and concentrated, especially for a Pinotage, this sees a combination of first and second fill French, American and Hungarian oak and is pretty smoky and toasty at the moment. Give it time, though, because there’s also plenty of dark berry and bramble fruit and tannic backbone. 2021-2026.
