Tim James tastes 50 years of Meerendal Pinotage

Tim James attended a celebration  at Meerendal Estate to mark the 50 years since the first bottlings under the estate name and visited the old Pinotage vineyard planted in 1955.

Six hectares of bushvines that now provide grapes for the Meerendal Heritage Block Pinotage – the bottles bearing the Old Vines Project Heritage seal. It’s the oldest extant vineyard in Durbanville and one of the oldest pinotage blocks in the country.
