Our boutique style Pinotage infuses a combination of complex fruity aromas, with sweet spicy and peppery undertones, plumy sweetness with a fresh finish in the mid pallet.
Our wine pairs perfectly with curried Cape Malay dishes, bobotie, Sushi, venison and game loins done on the braai/BBQ with wild mushrooms. This is how Pinotage was meant to be, purely South African at its best.
