Professor Perold’s creation, Pinotage, was propagated at Elsenburg College in 1935. In 1941 Myrtle Grove on the Schapenberg was chosen for the first commercial plantings. Today only one block remains on the Schapenberg - The Last of The First. Completely different in style to inland Pinotage. Elegant, perfumed, graceful - pinotage as it was originally intended?

'From 27 year old single-vineyard & only pinotage on Schapenberg, exposed to cooling effects of False Bay. Striking perfume, morello cherries, hint of undergrowth; palate too reflects pinot noir parentage, silky texture wrapped in gentlest of tannins. A pinotage of refinement, freshness & 12.5% alcohol, 2020 is totally beguiling.' – Platter's Guide, 5* (96/100)

'Luminescent dark cherry colour. Aromas of black cherries, plums, floral and mildly earthy. Similar to a Martinborough Pinot Noir. Taste: Excellent balance, finely integrated tannins threading through from start to finish. Morello cherry with a touch of earthiness.' - Nadia Langenegger, Winemaker

Producer information Pioneering biodynamic winemaking in South Africa with their lunar cycles, deep-bed system, worm house and portable chicken coop, Waterkloof are unassumingly elegant and sophisticated in their approach to farming and winemaking. The Somerset West estate places a strong emphasis on minimal intervention and gentle handling to preserve the natural 'circle of life' in all areas on the farm, and this is reflected in their wines, which show a commonality of sophisticated restraint. Their white wines are particularly food-friendly and have received high acclaim internationally from critics such as Jamie Goode and the Independent Wine Review.
