This modern Pinotage is simply delicous, with layers of juicy red fruit and oak spice.

The Old Road Wine Co. Originals range recalls the stories of the legendary characters who shaped the Franschhoek community in its early years. The Fat Man was an institution at the local train station, where he would greet new and familiar faces with a friendly smile and interesting anecdote, always accompanied by his loyal hound. The Fat Man’s Pinotage grapes are grown in shale soils with a higher percentage of clay from the Stellenbosch and Paarl region. The vineyards are managed for premium quality and optimum fruit expression, with harvesting done by hand at perfect ripeness.
