Fleur du Cap’s Unfiltered Pinotage 2014 has been chosen as one of South Africa’s best Pinotages at the 20th annual ABSA Top 10 Pinotage Awards.

As part of Fleur du Cap’s Unfiltered range, a superior selection that has been produced for nearly two decades, the Unfiltered Pinotage 2014 perfectly narrates the winemakers’ efforts to capture the wine’s natural style that is unique to the Western Cape. ‘Unfiltered’ refers to the process of racking the wine after fermentation resulting in rich, complex fruit flavours.
