Pinotage is a Proudly South African wine grape variety which is unique andHas a vibrant fruity character with gentle tannins and generous ripe black cherry and plum flavours. Pinotage is well suited to the Paarl region due to its warm climate, cooler breezy nights, coupled with shale and granite soils which retain water and provide fruit structure while promoting fresh acidity. The colour and flavour intensity of this Paarl Pinotage is a worthy expression of its heritage and quality.

This fruit-driven Pinotage generously shows its red berry and plummy nature. Expect to taste ripe dark-fruit flavours of black cherry and blackberry combined with notes of red figs. The friendly approachability of this Pinotage makes it a delightful partner to alfresco meals. An ideal choice with many foods and good gatherings thanks to its lively and sunny character.
