Balance – 2017 Pinotage Reserve – W.O. Western Cape, South Africa

The nose is fruity, fresh and well-built. It reveals notes of cassis, plum and small notes of blackberry associated with fine touches of red berries, thyme as well as discreet hints of rosemary and very discreet toasted hints. The palate is fruity, juicy, well-balanced and offers a good definition, a good structure, a fine straightness, suavity, dynamism, a fine juicy frame, a (very) slight freshness as well as a small fat. On the palate this wine expresses notes of fleshy blackberry, fleshy plum and small notes of fleshy strawberry associated with touches of fleshy red cherry as well as hints of juicy / acidulous redcurrant and discreet toasted hints. Tannins are fine, supple and well-integrated. Good persistence.
