WoTM - Swartland Winery Pinotage Limited Release 2018

 My Wine of The Month for September is 2018 Swartland Winery Pinotage Limited Release 2018.


Swartland Winery has multiple labels. The Limited Release range is not mentioned in Platter but Swartland Winery's website has a detailed factsheet on this wine here.

The back label says the Limited Release wines are 'old world style'. I thought this delicious wine was very new world because it was sleekly clean and fruit forward, offering blackberries and dark plum flavours. Oak barrel aging did what it should, providing structure and depth to the wine without making itself apparent.

Another great, fairly priced, wine from the Swartland Winery team.

but they should use a spell checker......
