Tormentino Tasted

Tormentino is a name new to me. It is is a premium brand of MAN Vintners.

I recently tasted their  2013 Bush Vine Pinotage was pale red and medium bodied with soft sweet ripe fruits and spices. 

Closed with real cork, Coastal Wine of Origin, 14% abv.

The name comes from "Cabo Tormentoso" (translated as “Stormy Cape” or “Cape of Storms”), the original name for the Cape of Good Hope given to it by the Portuguese explorer Bartholomieu Dias who first rounded the Cape in 1488.
