Vinification Details

  • The grapes are harvested & sorted manually. After the selection process is completed, the berries are gently destalked and then proceed to the fermentation tanks. During the fermentation the berries and juice are cooled down to 5◦C for a cold maceration. After three days yeasts are added. Once complete the juice is separated from the berries to be pressed. The juice is transferred into virgin French oak barrels to obtain structure, complexity and maturity.


  • Settlers started expanding the Cape region as farmland started to become scarce which led to the establishment of the towns of Robertson and Worcester. In the mid-19th century, the German settlers began planting orchards and vineyards and today, almost 40 percent of the vineyards in South Africa can be found in the Breede River Valley wine region

Regional Information

  • The Breede River Valley region offers a wide range of microclimates and terrains for grape cultivation. From the higher altitude mountain slopes with its rocky and stony soil to the valley floor running along the Breede river with mainly alluvial soil. A Mediterranean climate dominates this region, with temperatures colder in the winter and hotter in the summer than in the more coastal regions of the Western Cape.

Weak flavour and watery no punch of depth or flavour to it at all. Really disappointed compared to others in the finest range. Would not buy again.


1 stars

Any resemblance to pinotage is apocryphal,at best its a rough red. All the attributes of pinotage are absent ,avoid like the plague.

We find that the finest range of wines suit us. We are not experts, so we feel we cannot give an informed opinion. The pinotage wine is lovely with poultry

Review from tesco.com

Bought this as part of the latest Tesco wine deals as I hadn't had a bottle of South African wine in a long while. Decent depth with a strong flavour of berries. Not as smooth as a lot of wines which use the Pinot Noir grape as a base. Not my particular taste and I will stick to, what I think of as better wines, from other countries and stay clear of South Africa. Some of the wines currently coming out of Portugal for example, represent better value with a more satisfying taste.

Very nice

Review from tesco.com

My wife bought this to accompany a special meal to commemorate what would have been her parent's 62nd wedding anniversary. It didn't disappoint. Not quite 5 stars, but close. Highly recommended, at a good price. Enjoy - we did.

Good but not specatular, well rounded with a good finish.

Great wine to accompany Roast Beef.

Review from tesco.com

Pinotage is not a wine that I have purchased before but I will certainly buy it in the future. Full of flavour and a good body. Looked lovely in the glass, Every one that shared the wine was full of praise for it.

2013 'vintage' so rather young...

Review from tesco.com

I like Pinotage. I prefer Pinot Noir but the blend of Pinot Noir and Cinsaut sometimes works for me. At the discounted price it was worth trying a case. But not for a second time. Experience is a learning curve.

very enjoyable

Review from tesco.com

Bought a bottle of this one night when shopping enjoyed it and now am ordering a quantity to keep in as a regular Friday night relax. Have been to Stellenbosch and this confirms my wonder at the wines from this area.

Great Value for Money

Review from tesco.com

This is one of my favourite wines from Tesco. It offers a great consistent taste at very reasonable price point. It's a full flavoured wine with a good body and definitely hits above its weight. A number of people have commented on how good it is especially if it's given a chance to breath before it goes round. Rich enough to go with any meat, light enough to drink any time. Pinotage is my favourite grape and this is a great example as to why.
