Lanzerac Pinotage 1968
By Christian Eedes, 14 May 2013
Another stand-out wine from the “Old Wines Tasting” held before Old Mutual Trophy Wine Show was the Lanzerac Pinotage 1968. Red and black cherry plus some some forest floor character on the nose and palate – fully mature but still very much alive. Striking fruit purity – not unlike Pinot Noir but possessing more weight. Rich but balanced thanks to bright acidity. I fear they don’t make them like this anymore.
