The pinotage of sunflower sparkles in the glass in a ruby red, which is crossed by a violet shimmer. Elegant aromas of cherry liqueur and dark fruits, such as plum, flatter the nose and combine with undertones of mocha chocolate and woody spice.
Cherry and mocha aromas, refined by a delicate woody spice, unfold on the body-rich, balanced palate of the sunflower pinotage. Fruit and strong, round tannins are excellently integrated and ensure a long and lasting finish. This red wine from Stellenbosch, South Africa, is perfectly balanced and harmonious.
