Tasting Notes

Wine style
Sweet | 1 2 3 4 5| Dry
Light  | 1 2 3 4 5 | Full bodied

Colour
Enticing ruby red in colour.

Bouquet
On the nose a wonderful, balancing of ripe, dark red fruit like mulberry and blackberry, with mocha chocolate and Indian spice, underpinned by a bewitching hint of bramble and mint.

Palate
The palate is surprisingly rich, beautifully balanced and gives the impression of being elegant and powerful at the same time. Flavours of very ripe strawberry, cherry and darker blackberry are wrapped up in soft, comforting oak hints and a caress of vanilla and dark chocolate. Really long and luscious.

Food
Pinotage is versatile enough to pair across a huge spectrum of dishes from braaied Springbok fillet, spicy lamb stew and even Indian curries.
