Spioenkop Wines

In Elgin Valley, at the heart of the Western Cape (South Africa), he’s known as “the crazy young Belgian”. Koen Roose has lived and worked there since the end of the 2000s. He owes this name to his determination, not to say his stubbornness, because this winemaker opted right from the start not to follow the beaten track. He even deliberately goes against the flow, and we have discovered some real nuggets as a result. Spioenkop Wines – the name refers to a famous Boer War battle – produces around 30,000 bottles a year. (read more)

1900 Pinotage

Using this grape variety, which is the pride of South African winemakers, Koen Roose aimed to create a wine that is more elegant than usual. A wager that has certainly paid off! Grapes from his own vineyard are blended with grapes bought from the Stellenbosch region. Matured on lees for eleven months without decanting, it has undergone neither fining nor filtering at the end of the process.

   Ruby-coloured robe with glints of purple. Lightly coloured tears.

   Lovely bouquet of red and black fruits (strawberries, cherries, plums), spicy hints and, at the second nose (after airing in the glass), delicate woody touches.

   Fairly lively attack. Young tannins that hold out the promise of fine development.  

   A leg of lamb with ratatouille or a fine pepper steak. This wine should preferably be decanted one hour before serving.

   16 à 18°C.

   We like: its original profile, making it an unusual Pinotage.
