Notes

First vintage was the 2016, a new project for Ex Animo. Wightman is the grower - Andrew Wightman from Môrelig farm on the Paardeberg mountain in Swartland. Gouws is the winemaker - Jurgen Gouws of Intellego. Clarke refers to David & Jeannette Clarke - sommeliers and Ex Animo Wine Co. owners.

The current vintage has yet to be tasted, the notes below are from the previous vintage:
'The variety from which the Wightman, Gouws & Clarke Dry Red is made might get played down in terms of weighting on the label but the fact that it is Pinotage should deter no-one. A JV between Andrew Wightman of Môrelig in the Swartland, Jurgen Gouws of Intellego and David and Jeannette Clarke of distribution company Ex Animo, the current-release 2017 is a little beauty. The nose shows abundant fragrance with notes of flowers and fynbos plus red currant and cherries while the palate is pure and fresh – great fruit definition before a long and salty finish.' – Christian Eedes, Winemag.co.za, 93/100
