A smooth coating mouth-feel and a great
complexity of flavours. An elegance lingers on the palate with fine tannins and a
succulent fruity finish. This wine is balanced with mouth-watering acidity and
hints of oak. A scrumptious expression of warm climate Pinotage.
This wine goes exceptionally well with succulent lamb meatballs, savory braised beef tenderloin or oxtail, and even cheesy pizzas and traditional South African boerewors.
