Radford Dale Frankenstein
12.5%, Vegan, 750ml, 2016
Natural production, lush, rich, fruity, clean Pinotage, no burnt flavours - an absolute must for lovers of the variety. Termed 'Frankenstein' as a tongue in cheek reference to Pinotage's laboratory birth as a hybrid of Pinotage and Cinsault, this Pinotage goes to prove that not all experiments are as disastrous as those of Dr Frankenstein. Semi-carbonic maceration and part wood fermentation aim to preserve fruity aromas and freshness and keep the oak under wraps. Early picking preserves the fresh red fruits and Pinot Noir like elements of the variety. The result is the best Pinotage we have ever tasted and is a wine with its own genuine personality and style.
