The 2018 Abraham And The Heretics Pinotage is nicely fruit led, surprisingly drinkable and well worth a look even if Pinotage isn’t ‘your thing’.
Once infamously described by one winemaker in the Cape as ‘The bastard son of Pinot Noir’, Pinotage rarely gets a good press – even within a nation that somewhat naively considers it South Africa’s ‘signature’ variety.
This wine is a tongue-in-cheek hommage to the man given the task to combine the elegance of Pinot Noir with the high cropping properties of Cinsault.
