PROF is the cornerstone of the KV range. This blend comprises 60% Cinsaut and 40% Pinot Noir.
The inspiration for this wine is an effort to find out what Professor Abraham Perold had in mind when he created Pinotage by crossing Cinsaut and Pinot Noir in 1925. It was at Welgevallen (University of Stellenbosch research farm) that Prof Perold cultivated the first Pinotage vines. Prof Perold never had the opportunity to taste the first bottled wine made from this grape variety, and with the crafting of this wine Wynand Lategan tried to discover the purpose of Prof Perold’s creation.

Prof has a prevailing sense of freshness and lightness. The fruit spectrum is leaning mostly towards the tangy sour cherry and red fruits. A soft and delicate palate with a fundamental complexity rounds it off seamlessly.

Only 1 396 bottles was produced of this wine.
