While I didn’t get an opportunity to visit Kerr Farm on this trip to New Zealand I found a bottle of P’06 in a wine store. This is the 2006 vintage Pinotage of which I’d tasted a sample in 2007 with Jaison Kerr at his vineyard. (see here)
P’06 is medium dark ruby red with a subdued nose and restrained fruit. It’s a bit flat in the mid-palate but finishes well with mulberries and tangy spices. The tannins are soft and there are no rough edges. The wine is already throwing some sediment. Overall it is a well made red wine in a Bordeaux style, ideal with dinner.
