Awards, Reviews, And Other Notes:

87 pts Robert Parker Jr.’s The Wine Advocate (NM)
The 2014 The Den Pinotage has a pleasant mulberry and iodine-scented nose that is clean and fresh, perhaps one you might describe as “commercially savvy.” The palate is medium-bodied with chewy black fruit laced with melted tar, Provençal herbs and fennel, leading to a nicely poised finish. This is a fine Pinotage from Painted Wolf.

Winemaker Notes:

Grapes picked ripe, crushed and fermented in tank with staves. The barrels component was hand punched in small fermenter, pressed off in a basket press before being run directly into barrel.The Den is a luscious. fruit packed and full bodied. Swartland Pinotage off unirrigated vineyards- very minimal almost organic viticulture – a social wine to enjoy.
