Hidden Valley Pinotage 2000

94% Pinotage selected from 33 year old vines at Dave Hidden’s vineyard in Devon Valley, Stellenbosch. Blended with 6% Cabernet Sauvignon; matured in new 225 litre Nevers and Allier oak barrels for 15 months. 120 cases of this wine were sold at the 2001 CWG Auction. Tasting note: Medium-dark ruby colour with garnet edge; aromas and flavours of cherries, red berries and spice with subtle vanilla and cedar; smooth, velvety tannins with a lingering finish. The description in the 2001 auction catalogue suggested that this wine should be bottle matured until at least 2003, and that it should continue to improve for about five years thereafter i.e. 2008. Now more or less at its peak, and should stay there for another 4 or 5 years.
