"The inspiration for this wine came from a stubborn belief that Pinotage today has its place among more established varieties. It can produce wines of intrigue and complexity -without becoming harsh, chemical or showing any of the other cruel features that its detractors have reason to name. Treat it meanly and Pinotage will show its angry side. Through its clarity and purity of fruit, it’s lithe texture and its absence of any kind of aggression. It is not a monster; it is a soul with a heart and one which will repay kindness with abundant generosity of its own." —winemaker
"The 2014 Radford Dale Frankenstein Pinotage has a tight nose at the moment - broody black fruit at first that opens with attractive flora/dried violet scents. The palate is medium-bodied with a sweet, red cherry and pomeagranate-tinged entry. The acidity is nicely judged and the tannins very fine, exuding harmony towards the slightly tarry finish. This is a top-notch Pinotage." —Neal Martin, The Wine Advocate
