WoTM - Rijk's Pinotage Reserve 2016

My Wine of The Month of August is Rijk's Pinotage Reserve 2016

It is a mature wine recently released; I bought it at Wine Village in Hermanus in March 2023. 

It spent 22 months in 60% new French oak barrels and was made by the skilled Pierre Wahl. The Reserve is taken from the 20 best barrels.

While capable of great aging, this wine is drinking beautifully now, with intense black plum fruit flavours, and the oaking is not obvious. Simply delicious.
