South African Pinotage


Originating from Western Cape province in South Africa, the country’s most notorious varietal is made up of hints of dark red fruits, vanilla and…bacon! A versatile red wine that is a pleasure consumed on its own, but really shines when paired with the right meals. A very subtle smokiness reminiscent of sweet unlit pipe tobacco makes its way to the nose when coaxed by proper temperature and decanting technique. Refreshing acidity and firm structure: an ideal candidate for aging!

Food pairing: Bison, roasted duck, and Italian thin-crust pizza.
Comments: We strongly recommend to bottle age this Pinotage a minimum of 6 months. Allow it to breathe once opened or decant slowly.
