Abraham & The Heretics Pinotage

ABRA001
Named after Abraham Izak Perold who perfected the crossing of Pinot Noir and Cinsault in 1924. ‘Professor, we want you to create a uniquely South African grape variety that has all the nobility of Pinot Noir but the high-volume potential of Cinsault’. Pinotage is what they got. If you like Pinotge then this example will be a treat - bold, full bodied, warming and juicy dark fruit.

The South African Legends Series

Over the past 20 years, Richard Kelley MW has become one of the most respected authorities on South African wine. Between 1995 and 2002, he lived and worked in the Cape. Throughout this time, he established a healthy rapport with the great and the good of the local wine scene, affording him access to their distinguished cellars. Along the way he started to discover small parcels of wine and engaged some of the finest Cape winemakers in project work with him. He has named this series after some of the legends of South African wine.
