The grapes of the Lanzerac Pionier Pinotage come from a 21 year old single vineyard and deliver a complex wine that sparkles with a breathtaking dark red in the glass. The Lanzerac Pionier Pinotage caresses the palate with its velvety softness and lingers long after the last sip. The aromas of ripe red fruits, which are classic for this grape variety, as well as the great mouth feel make this red wine, which has matured for 21 months in barriques, a great taste experience. Already a pleasure today, the Lanzerac Pionier Pinotage rewards patient connoisseurs over time with further aromas of caramel and dark chocolate and an even softer structure. By the way, the wine reminds us that Lanzerac filled a bottle with Pinotage for the first time worldwide in 1959. Enjoy the flagship of the winery which is limited to 6300 bottles best with dark meat, duck or spicy dishes.

Lanzerac Wine of outstanding Quality

With its true high quality wines, Lanzerac excites wine lovers worldwide. Whilst grape varieties such as Sauvignon Blanc are fresh and tangy, the red wines such as the Le General have a wonderfully strong and complex taste. Hence, Lanzerac offers the right wine for every taste.  In 1959, Lanzerac was the first winery to bottle a Pinotage.

The Winery Lanzerac

The winery Lanzerac has an area of about 150 hectares; almost 50 of them are reserved for wine cultivation. The estate can look back on a long history that is over 300 years old and therefore belongs to the oldest and most successful estates of the country.
Additionally, there is a true luxury hotel on the estate that is able to satisfy even the most demanding customers. Together with a starred restaurant in which modern South African cuisine is served, Lanzerac stands for pure pleasure amongst South Africa enthusiasts.

Perfect Climate at the Winery Lanzerac

Lanzerac is located in the famous wine region Stellenbosch, the heart of the South African Winelands. Ideal climatic conditions are present here that enable the cultivation of the noble grapes in the first place. Wonderful, multifaceted soils and sufficient rain make for an optimal growth of the vines and the grapes.

The winemakers and the whole team concerned with wine production all have years of experience that they use when cultivating and developing the Lanzerac wines. Only through their skills, the great high quality wines can be created for which the estate Lanzerac is so famous.

Lanzerac focuses on natural Taste

The winery Lanzerac and its winemakers follow a simple yet very effective philosophy. Only good grapes deliver excellent wine and the cellar technology should merely be supportive. This is why Lanzerac has indeed one of the most modern cellars in South Africa, yet only uses it carefully and targeted. It is always about preserving the natural taste of the grape varieties.
