This delightful wine pays tribute to the bat eared fox, a fascinating little creature which feeds mainly on termites. We’re actively trying to conserve this unique species, which is indigenous to our Robertson estate, as they are often falsely identified as jackals and killed – a practice we are striving to halt. The grapes for this wine were hand harvested from vineyards in Franschhoek, Paarl and Robertson. The wine was fermented in open and closed fermenters with regular punch downs and pump-overs to ensure upfront fruit and soft extraction. It spent 10 months in 3rd and 4th fill barrels with a portion of the blend remaining unoaked. On the nose you’ll encounter ripe cherry, strawberries and plums with ripe red berries and spices on the palate. A full structured and well balanced wine which rewards with a juicy yet elegant mouthfeel and silky tannins.

 Wine Advocate 87 points (Oct 2014)
The 2012 The Game Reserve Pinotage has a simple, black cherry and banana-skin bouquet that needs more definition. The palate is better, with supple and lithe tannins, well-judged acidity and a seductive smooth finish. It is just the aromatics that let the side down here.
