Intense deep red wine. Aromas of blackcurrants and ripe plums, with underlying cherries, dark chocolate and bland nuances on the nose.

The various aromas carry through to a rich, velvety, complex taste supported by layers of well-rounded tannins from the long barrel aging. The gentle presence of oak on the nose and palate supports this delicious pinotage.


The grapes were hand-harvested at night in small baskets to preserve the grapes as best as possible.


A 48-hour cold maceration period precedes fermentation to extract color and fruit.

Extraction during fermentation took place by pumping the juice over the skins 3 times a day.

The skinned grapes were gently pressed before being fermented until the wine was dry. MLF took place in wooden barrels.

Aged for 22 months in older French oak barriques


"Up and coming" producer in Tulbagh in the central Cape/ Swartland region. Rijks specializes in the grapes Pinotage, Chenin Blanc.

Rijks was started by Neville Dorrington back in 1996. Neville had worked for 20 years in the leather industry and wanted to try something new. That is why he and his family moved to Tulbagh, which at that time was unknown in the wine world. Here they settled on a farm where wine had never been grown before. But the analyzes showed that the conditions were ideal for cultivation with low yields and high quality.

Today, Rijks is considered one of the absolute best Pinotage houses in the world. They are one of only two houses to have achieved 10 ABSA Top 10 awards.

The soil type for this wine is shale.
