This wine is mouth filling and very well rounded. Well balanced and smooth with deep, dark chocolate-dipped plums on the palate and a savoury end.
After malolactic fermentation in tanks the wine was transferred to barrels and aged in French oak for 15 months before being transferred and blended. 33% of the barrels were new French Oak. After fining and a light filtration the wine was bottled.
Pinotage goes well with smoked duck and pulled pork (burger) for example. It can also take a fair amount of spice. It has been successfully paired it with a hot curry (Indian rather than Thai) and it more than holds its own with spicy barbecue sauces and with chilli con carne. (In general I think it benefits from being served a couple of degrees cooler than the ambient temperature - that is to say, cool rather than chilled).
