FRAM Pinotage 2016
750ml red wine
Sourced from a 1978 vineyard 20km north of Clanwilliam, 16 months old french barriques.
These grapes are from a farm in the hills north west of Clanwilliam. Red sandy soils and struggling vines, battling for survival. But grapes, like most other living things, tend to be at their strongest when they are fighting for survival.
The hallmark of this wine is the almost subtle density, combined with a very long lingering palate. It’s like you don’t even notice the power at first, but then it stays with you and just won’t go away.
