NV Estate Pinotage

NV Estate Pinotage Wine Details
Price: $21.00 per bottle

Description: This only our second varietal Pinotage release,and a good one. The 2000 growing season was extended and and cooler giving the grapes a longer hang time. This produced a more forwardly fruity wine with better color and juicy, ripe red fruit aromas. Aromas of berry fruit preserves, plum and cinnamon can be found while cranberry and briar flavors linger on the finsh. Our Pinotage wine is th perfect foil for spring and summer table fare, including foods from the backyard grill. With its vibrant fruit and rich texture it is sure to please many wine drinkers. Enjoy!
