Many believe the best Pinotage in the world comes from the Breedekloof valley.It is certainly one of the most awarded varieties from this area.
Grapes are harvested early in the day. They are then crushed, destemmed, and fermented on the skin. Open and closed pump overs are given for colour extract. From there the juice is fermented, blended, stabilized and filtered.
We love the fresh, intense cherry and dark chocolate aromas. The juicy soft palate is framed by warming vanilla and touch of oak.
Can be enjoyed now or cellared at cool temperature for up to 3 years.
This blend of Pinotage and Malbec has a jammy nose of cherries and juicy berries, followed in the mouth by a smooth, round, chocolatey character with some raspberry and cherry tang, mouthcoating but gentle tannins, and a warm, spicy finish. A very drinkable wine.
Food Pairing – Go Roast – classic with roasted meats and vegetables topped with flavourful sauces such as teriyaki, plum sauce, and barbecue sauce. Thai spice and chili mixtures are also a natural partner. However, as an out-of-the-box pairing, Pinotage goes surprisingly well with sushi.
