Bonnievale Wines has added a Pinotage to our range of fine wines. We recently launched the Pinotage 2016, which promises to be a fine addition to wines known for exceeding expectations.

For overseas visitors in particular, the addition is especially exciting, since Pinotage is uniquely South African. It was developed at Stellenbosch in the 1920s by crossing Pinot noir and Cinsaut.

Only the best grapes go into the Bonnievale Wines Pinotage 2016. During vinification, the juice stayed on the skins for additional 4 – 5 days, ensuring a well-developed body and deep red colour. Half the wine matured in second and third-fill, French and American oak before being blended and bottled.

Aromas of coffee and chocolate

The result is an immensely smooth wine showing aromas of coffee and chocolate. The palate is balanced with flavours of dark fruit and gentle notes emanating from judicious oak-integration.

You can enjoy it now or mature it for up to four years from vintage. It is best savoured by itself or paired with dishes such as grilled lamb and other red meats.

The wine is priced at R45 per bottle and is being distributed to leading wine stores. You can order it online from the Bonnievale Wines e-store, at Otherwise you can order from the cellar by phoning 023 616 2800 or sending email to:
