Stellenbosch Farmers’ Oracle of the Stars Pinotage 2012

Stellenbosch Farmers’ Winery was born when William Charles Winshaw left America and founded the Stellenbosch Grape Juice Works in South Africa in 1909. Today Stellenbosch Farmers’ Winery Ltd. markets approximately one-third of all wines sold in South Africa, and has a total of approximately 3,350 people it employs. Their cellars are among the largest in the world, and are located in Stellenbosch, a 320-year old town in the heart of the Cape Winelands, just east of Cape Town.

Inky red-violet in colour with aromas of wild berries, earth and peppery spice. Cherry and blackberry flavours merged into smoky peat elements and crushed black peppercorn in the lengthy finish. Embodying an enchanting mix of bright fruit, dense smoky earth and spice, this is a phenomenal value great for sipping by the fireplace.
