Survivor – 2016 Pinotage – W.O. Western Cape, Swartland, South Africa

The nose is aromatic and offers a small freshness. It reveals notes of vanilla, plum and small notes of strawberry, crushed raspberry associated with small touches of chocolate and an imperceptible touch of garrigue / rosemary (in the background). The palate is juicy, fruity, well-balanced and offers a beautiful acidulous frame, tension, a small straightness, suavity as well as fat. On the palate this wine expresses notes of ripe redcurrant, plum and small notes of associated with small hints of tonka bean, vanilla as well as discreet toasted hints. Tannins are fine and (very) slightly firm.
