Spice Route Pinotage
Spice Route Pinotage, has intense ruby red colour. Rich blackcurrant and cherries on the nose. Intense dark fruit flavours on the palate that combine well with sweet vanilla oak aromas.
Without Charles Back the Swartland would still be regarded as a rural backwater. Today, the region is the source of many of South Africa’s outstanding wines, yet Spice Route remains one of the best and most credible producers in the region, due largely to the fact that they own their own vineyards. Spice Route’s 100 hectares of vineyards are situated in Malmesbury and Darling. The former, all bush trained on Malmesbury shale and red clay subsoils (the clay ensures the vineyards are dry grown), give the Grenache and Mourvèdre the intensity of fruit that makes this region so exciting.
