Pinotage Wine Details
Price: $14.00 per bottle

Description: Delicate and balanced like a Pinot noir, with the hardiness and robust color of Cinsault. Deep intense ruby color with purple highlights. Layered aromas of raspberry, spices, red cherry, and fruitcake give way to rich complexity of flavours including raspberry, vanilla, plums, coffee. Smooth on the palate, easy drinking

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.
