Black Elephant Vintners Three Men in a Tub with a Rubber Duck
This product is currently sold out.
If you love Pinotage, you'll really love this; if you don't, this should also change your mind. But firstly, why the bonkers name? It all stems from Black Elephant's equally madcap Sauvignon Blanc, ‘Two Dogs A Peacock & A Horse’, which a couple of years ago was nicknamed "Three Men In A Tub With A Rubber Duck" by the gents' importers in New York. So naturally when thinking up a name for their new Pinotage, they chose this!
The fruit for Three Men in a Tub Pinotage was selected from 2 old bushvine vineyards, one on Scherpenheuwel in Franschhoek and the other growing in “Die Perdeskoen” ward of Wellington. Both vineyards growing on decomposed granite soils which are ideal for the production of Pinotage as it allows for even growing and ripening as well as naturally controlling vigour and crop levels.
This maiden 2015 Three Men in a Tub Pinotage is pitch black with a dark purple rim. The nose is very expressive and shows notes of red and black currant, chocolate and exotic spices. The palate is youthful with great fruit concentration, driving acidity and fine but firm tannins. Enjoy with marinated lamb, Cajun-spiced ‘blackened’ fish and come the winter - a hearty game pie.
