This classic South African Pinotage has generous red berry fruit and soft tannins. Perfect with pork, lamb chops or burgers.
A fusion of sour cherries, vanilla, spice and violets entice the senses. These intense flavours follow through to the palate, resulting in a full-bodied and lingering finish.
Our emblem of a Pinotage vine leaf shows the distinctive tooth-shaped gap between the first two lobes. Winemaker Beyers Truter, world renowned for his Pinotage wines, was named International Winemaker of the Year at the 1991 International Wine and Spirit Competition held in London. Pinotage is unique to South Africa. It was created in Stellenbosch by cross-pollinating Pinot Noir and Hermitage (Cinsaut) cultivars. The grapes derive from unirrigated bush vines of 20 - 40 years old in the famous Stellenbosch wine region. Full bodied and complex, this wine embodies the best features of Pinotage. The blackberry and cassis flavours are well balanced with the subtle wood maturation characer. It can be enjoyed now, but the smooth richness will develop even further for up to five years. Ideal with venison, red meat, curries and spicy foods.
A sumptuous upfront nose of mocha & coffee beans leads to an invitingly rich palate of wild berry and dark chocolate. Enjoy with grilled and barbecued meats. Delicious with smoked pork ribs.
