Elemental Bob – My Finite

elemental bob my finite 2010Two years ago at the London International Wine Fair I tasted Elemental Bob The Turkish at the South African young guns stand. The wines are made by Craig Sheard who by day is the winemaker at Spookfontein.

Last week at Wines of South Africa UK’s Braai Day dinner at High Timber I had the opportunity to taste another wine from Elemental Bob – the 2010 My Finite.

My Finite is 100% Pinotage from the Hemel-en-Aarde Valley. It is an expressive example of the variety and at 15% alcohol there is plenty to it. But the wine doesn’t come across as overcooked or overbearing. The oak provides good structure and a bit of spice, while not going any near coffee Pinotage territory, thankfully! It’s backed up by bold fruit and there is a bit of fragrance too.

It was awesome with the meat, especially the traditional style boerewors.
