Longridge 2004

My initial impression of Longridge's 2004 Pinotage is of ripe red plums, but underneath the immediately attractive fruit is a serious wine with a good structure and some wood tannins.

The back label suggests enjoying this wine from 2011 till 2016. Call me impetuous, but I couldn’t wait and I enjoyed it last night with a sirloin steak. Drink it cool now or keep aging it; the choice is yours.

I've had several very nice Longridge's, but for some reason this is a winery under my radar, probably because I don't see it in my local wine stores. But if you do see it, don't pass by.
