On the nose there is an explosion of plums and dark berries. Spicy undertones and hints of crushed cashew nuts and fresh mint gives this wine dimension. The palate is all about silky tannins and length. Bright flavours of plum and berries combined with the subtle tannins, makes this a smooth wine on the palate. It finishes with unexpected power and an explosion of chocolate that lingers.
Wine Maker Notes
Our ancient soils and equable, warm climate happily conspire to grow soft-structured, juicy red wines that taste different from the rest of the world. The essence of our Longitude is painstaking blending, always with Pinotage as a component. We want to accentuate a unique South African combination of accessibility and complex diversity. Longitude must taste juicy and fruity. It must feel soft, but have intriguing, lingering tannins and flavour, and it must offer unbeatable value for money.
A great accompaniment to seasoned and spiced Karoo lamb chops on a braai, in fact lamb pairs exceptionally well with Longitude in almost any shape or form.
