Seven Poplars Pinotage

Seven Poplars Pinotage Wine Details
Price: $23.90 per bottle

Description: Pinotage is a South African variety which is a hybrid of Pinot Noir and Cinsault. The first vines were planted here in 1996 and a further half acre was planted in 1997. This is a great example of a Pinotage albeit a bit far from it’s homeland. The nose is full of rich, jammy red and black berry fruit. A full bodied wine that is drinking well now but will continue to improve with age. This is the only Pinotage produced in Canada.

Varietal Definition
Grape widely grown and successful in South Africa. Derived from the crossing of a Pinot Noir clone and Cinsaut. Used to make a popular, hearty red wine that ages well - (and often requires it). Also found widely grown in New Zealand and in smaller acreages in California.
