Mature Pinotage

Nicholas Thomas Nobilo 2007 Jubilee Reserve Pinotage NZD$69.99

Rich, smooth and rather tasty red from a grape variety that accounts for a very small percentage of the national vineyard. Nicely mature, with a suggestion of Oxo cube adding complexity to the red berry and spicy oak flavours. A silken texture is another beneficiary of bottle age. Appealing wine in a handsome package. Ready now, but no rush. (Cork)
