Aaldering Pinotage Blanc 2013 – Characterful and intriguing

Marianne & Fons, of Dutch origin, now own Aaldering Wine Estate in Stellenbosch. Along with their cellarmaster, Dustin Osborne, they are doing incredible things with the controversial, ‘room-splitting’ Pinotage grape.

A Pinotage Blanc! This wine was certainly a first for us here at Wine Cellar. We found this full-bodied, richly textured white very intriguing. Showing subtle fruity aromas and a high alcohol content of 15%, it remains balanced and fresh.

Christian Eedes awarded the 2012 vintage 16/20, describing it as ‘not a million miles off Grenache Blanc’. Read his full review on Whatidranklastnight.co.za.
