2008 Niepoort Pisca

Post by DRT » 08:36 Sat 07 Aug 2010

Cask sample tasted blind in June 2010 as part of this review

A lovely purple red colour which is almost translucent. Fresh ripe fruits on the nose. Big and full in the mouth with masses of blackcurrant, gripping acidity and powder-dry tannins. The finish is long and mouthwatering. A deliscious wine with good balance. 91 points.
