Glenda rated this wine as 85/100 with the following review:

Pinotage is the result of a crossing of Pinot Noir and Cinsaut.The relationship to Pinot Noir is easily noted on the nose where there are strawberry aromas.
This is a robust wine with great structure and harmony. On the finish there is an intense, dry woodiness and some bitterness.
It was delicious paired with char-grilled ostrich steaks.
