Wine tasting notes

Classic Pinotage aromas of spicy mulberries, plum pudding and cherries, supported by smoky bacon nuances. Juicy and accessible with soft palate and delicious fruit concentration.

Expert reviews

Wine Advocate/Robert Parker (2014) - 88 pts

Nov 2015 - : Neal Martin. The 2014 Petit Pinotage was soaked on the skins for a week and then taken off the skins a couple of days after the fermentation has started. It offers crisp crunchy black fruit on the nose that frankly shows more freshness and delineation than many of the country's more self-aggrandizing Pinotages. The palate is medium-bodied with fine acidity, and harmonious in the mouth with a touch of toastiness on the finish. Delicious.


Vinous/Antonio Galloni (2014) - 88 pts

June 2015 - Bright ruby-red. Pure, subtle aromas of candied purple fruits and violet pastille. A sweet, rich, ripe fruit bomb with distinctly candied high notes. With its 6 g/l r.s., this reminded me a bit of a Beaujolais with a little sugar. Very clean, moderately intense Pinotage with good cut and a savory, firmly tannic finish. Forrester's Petit range has consistently offered some of South Africa's most compelling values in the $10 range.-- Stephen Tanzer


JancisRobinson.com (2009) - 15.5 pts

Tasted November 2009. Pure and ripe red fruit, simple but straightforward and well-made (the  little lick of sweetness is no bad thing) with a little aromatic lift on  the finish.(RH).


Wine Spectator (2014) - 87 pts

Friendly, with fresh-cut green melon and green almond notes, lined with a hint of makrut lime. Offers a bright, unadorned finish.


Wine Enthusiast (2011) - 86 pts

This is a jammy and fruit-forward selection, with lively notes of raspberry, strawberry and red plum, accented by nuances of potpourri and gamy meat. Medium tannins and skin-driven fruit flavors provide the palate nice structure and grip. — L.B. (11/1/2012)


Platter's South African Wine Guide (2014) - 3.5 stars

Unwooded 2014 bursts with succulent red berries, made in modern, fruit-forward style, as all these (where 'petit' also hints at 'small' difference made if all vineyard work is done by hand, providing job opportunities).
