Viini Tv Interviews Bruce Jack : Part III Posted on June 10 2011 by
Viini Tv's Iikka and Flagstone's Bruce Jack sample and discuss South Africa's signature wine, Pinotage and sample Flagstone's Writer's Block.
In Part 3 Bruce suggests that wines might be judged according to a few more intrinsic factors like 'Yum' factor and how the wine actually affects your mood, conversation and evening. A holistic measure we've perhaps forgotten in the West.
The pair discuss Flagstone's Pinotage, Writer's Block. The ever debated South African signature wine is a delight for some and a unpalatable for others. Bruce explains the often unfair treatment dished out to Pinotage is not the fault of the grape but of a poor wine. Consumers tend to blame the fruit rather than the wine maker.
