Tasting Note
'Koen Roose-Vandenbroucke regards Pinotage as “our national flagship” and has done more than most winemakers to promote it with the quality of his own reds. Deeply coloured, meaty and intense, with notes of violet, black olive and summer berries, this has fantastic structure and intensity. 2020-28'. – Tim Atkin, Special South Africa Report 2017, 94/100

100% own grapes. 30% whole-bunch fermentation before maturation lasting 15 months in barrel, 60% new. Quite a heady mix of black cherry, flowers and earth plus a little oak spice on the nose. Really dense on the palate – impressive fruit purity, fresh acidity and quite firm tannins. Seems a little richer and riper than 2015. - Christian Eedes, Winemag.co.za 92/100

About the winemaker
The vision of winemaker, Koen Roose, is to produce elegant wines that are sexy and pure but at the same time unique, a little wild even. Squeaky clean is not for him. Personality is important and at Spioenkop, whether it’s to do with his atypical vineyard plantings or the combination of Old and New World in his boutique wine cellar, technology and laboratory analyses will only be used to assist the winemaker and never to detract from the importance of human involvement.
