WOTM - Spencer Bay Pinotage 2007

Wow! Beautiful nose, powerful ripe berry fruits, smooth and sleek, yet with good structure. This is a wine that makes you stop and pause after you take a sip and just stare at the glass to wonder how they managed to get so much flavour in one glass.

Winemaker’s Reserve is the premium label from Namaqua, well known for the bag-in-box wines.

This is a delicious and most enjoyable wine. A most worth Wine of the Month for March.
