The Western Capes diverse palate of wine growing regions allow Fleur du Cap the perfect canvas to make wines that express the essence of a varietal. A masterful selection of fruit combined with the creativity of our winemakers results in wines that express our vision, freedom of expression. This wine has a deep red colour with crimson edges. On the nose it shows ripe fruit such as plums and a hint of black currant, finishing in oak spice. Fullbodied on the palate with ripe plum and other berries standing out. The Pinotage is very well balanced with a lingering after taste. This Pinotage is perfect with grilled lamb, poultry, pork roasts and game fi sh. It is also an ideal accompaniment to classic Cape cuisine such as Bobotie and Malay curries.
Fleur du Cap wines were first launched in 1968, shortly after the opening of Die Bergkelder, the famous mountain cellar which cuts deep into the Papegaaiberg in Stellenbosch. Built by Dr. Anton Rupert, it was the first underground bottle maturation cellar of its kind in the southern hemisphere. Die Bergkelder distinguished itself as an important innovator in the wine industry. In the 1970s, the team played a pivotal role in establishing classic noble grape varieties in the vineyards of the Cape and introduced the maturation of quality wine in small casks of new French oak. The launch in 1998 of the top tier Fleur du Cap Unfiltered range is a testament to this pioneering legacy.
