About Rossouw, Gouws & Clarke:
'This is the 4th vintage of our Pinotage. The idea of this wine is to make a delicious, dry Pinotage that is priced reasonably, and that shows off the more fragrant, graceful and refined characteristics of this much maligned grape variety. We have a new source for the grapes – we are now using the organically farmed fruit by Scholtz Rossouw on the Langkloof farm in the Paardeberg, and the wine is beautifully made by Jurgen Gouws of Intellego (who has done another amazing job this year). Made from organically farmed fruit with a little bit of sulphur, drawing a clear and unobtrusive line between farm and glass. We truly hope you enjoy.' – Winemakers

Tasting notes:
'Wine distributors David and Jeanette Clarke along with Intellego winemaker Jurgen Gouws have for a while made a very palatable Pinotage in a new wave style, which is to say light and fresh. Previously they used grapes grown by Andrew Wightman of Swartland property Môrelig but in 2019 they worked with Scholtz Rossouw who also farms in the Paardeberg, the vineyard in question planted in 1968. Winemaking involving carbonic maceration, the nose shows cherry and raspberry plus herbs, spice and a little earthiness while the palate is pure and fresh with crunchy tannins. Perfect for summer al fresco dining, this is a useful reference when it comes to plotting the way forward for Pinotage.' – Christian Eedes, WineMag.co.za, 92/100
