The Diesel Pinotage spent 4 days in open casks with punch downs every 2 hours and saw 21 months in 100% new French oak barrels, with 20 out of 300 selected from this flagship wine. It has a pleasant reduction on the nose, perhaps a touch of burnt rubber there but this will disappear with time. The palate is medium-bodied with supple, ripe tannins, plenty of red fruit with a well balanced, vibrant finish. There is an attractive purity emerging in the mouth and I think that will be matched by the nose with a couple of years in bottle.
