Thorne and Daughters Menagerie Pinotage 2022


Thorne and Daughters ‘Menagerie’ Pinotage is the contemporary face of Pinotage, a grape that is extremely versatile in the cellar and at table. Carbonic maceration followed by ageing in neutral oak for 9 months. It’s tangy, with the grape’s trademark sandy tannins providing precision, rails and length. Bloody plum, rhubarb, raspberry, cocoa powder and cherry. Juicy and succulent, with terrific acidy balancing the rich fruit. Very fine indeed. Waters Wine Co


Grapes from a Skurfberg vineyard planted in the mid-1990s. Carbonic maceration in stainless steel tank before being pressed to older barrels, maturation lasting nine months. Seductive aromatics of cherry, plum, pomegranate and floral perfume. Medium bodied with good freshness and lightly grippy tannins, the finish nicely dry. Does this have maturation potential? That’s irrelevant as its absolutely delicious now. A once-off bottling. Christian Eedes, Winemag
