Can Pinotage age? You bet!


Professor Mike Veseth, who blogs as The Wine Economist, attended a Pinotage seminar at Cape Wine 2012 where he tasted old Pinotages starting with a 1964 Lanzerac bottling, which he found ‘still had a lot to say’.

He writes



... if the question is whether Pinotage can age (as Old World wines are supposed to do), the answer is very clearly yes it can. These particular older vintages have evolved into quite fascinating creatures — interesting enough to make a fan of old Burgundies stop and think. Another eye-opening experience.
