"An unoaked Pinotage from Linton Park's Paarl vineyards, this has a lifted cherry and wild strawberry nose, with pleasing touches of floral character and spice. On the palate it is fairly lean, but has a softness to the fruit, tannin and acidity that makes it very easy to drink. It stays quite crisp, with the sweetness of the fruit and the spicy component dominating the finish. Another very good example of this fruity yet not too ripe and over-bearing style. 85/100"

Producer Information

Rising from the heart of the picturesque Wellington Valley is a mountain known as Groenberg, or Green Mountain. Nestling in its verdant foothills, with sweeping views across the Boland to distant Table Mountain, is the historic Slangerivier Farm - a wine estate that embraces the diversity of nature that is Wellington. Linton Park Wines captures the history, personality and style that can only be truly South African. The homestead and farm, which dates back to 1699, stands as a monument to the farm's proud viticultural heritage. The magnificent farm of over 290 hectares, with various cultivars such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz, Merlot, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc. One of the highest vineyards in South Africa, situated on the lush slopes of the Groenberg, where higher rainfall, more moderate summer and winter temperatures, and rich Oakleaf soils combine to create a distinctively favourable micro-climate, and unique terroir.
