Bellevue 1953 Pinotage 2017
Bellevue Wine Estate in Stellenbosch has been owned by the Morkel family since 1861. In 1953, together with Paul Sauer from Kanonkop, PK Morkel was one of the first few farmers to plant Pinotage on a commercial scale. This bold step clearly paid off, as the 1953 Pinotage block is not only still in full production today, but it remains the pride and joy of the Bellevue estate. The Bellevue 1953 Pinotage 2017 is the incredibly special red wine made from this block. This wine shows maraschino cherry and plum flavours on the nose, complimented by a silky tannin structure and a lingering finish. This wine has an ageing potential of 10 plus years.
Enjoy with game, lamb and braised dishes.
