Canada's Hillside Estate impresses

Adrian Bryksa was impressed by Hillside Estate's first Pinotage release which he reviewed for Canada's R4NT.ca, and rated it 90 points:

"I think Canadian red wines sometimes have a tendency to be a bit on the thin side but this Pinotage was an exception. On the nose, there was notes of fruit, earth, tobacco, and game. I could be nuts but there was some teriyaki beef jerky. In the mouth, this wine displayed cherries and cocoa with a full mouth feel with seamlessly, integrated tannins. The finish on this wine was long and memorable. This wine is in my top 10 Canadian wines."
