A Pinotage of Distinction
“Guillermo” Pinotage 2010 was recently awarded an impressive 90 points out of 100 by the highly respected US publication, Wine Advocate.
Reviewer, Neal Martin wrote “The 2010 Guillermo Pinotage from Swartland is blended with 10% Merlot and 4% Grenache. It shows impressive purity on the nose with scents of macerated dark cherries, wild strawberry and raspberry. The oak is beautifully integrated. The palate is medium-bodied with grippy tannins. It has very impressive focus, a Pinotage a little aloof and masculine, but with style and class.”
Winemaker, Jeremy Borg and the rest of the Painted Wolf “pack” are delighted with this accolade. It comes shortly after the 2009 vintage was a finalist in the ABSA Pinotage Top 10 competition in South Africa.
It is a tribute to the consistent high quality of grapes grown by Penny & Billy “Guillermo” Hughes at Kasteelsig in the Swartland region of the Western Cape.
