Pinotage is South Africa’s star red grape. A cross between Pinot Noir and Cinsault, it combines rich fruit notes with deep flavors of earth and smoke. Soft tannins and high acids balance each other out to create complex, full-bodied wines.
The Riebeek Cellars Pinotage is a stellar expression of this unique grape. With a balance of expressive fruit aromas, earthy flavors, and supple tannins, this bottle is a delightful red that is both bright and rich. It is the ideal pairing for savory barbecue.
This wine opens with aromas of dried cherries, dates, and coffee balanced by mushroom and earth. Flavors of herbs and rhubarb complement hints of grilled plum and oak. Dry with a medium body, the well-integrated, coating tannins lead into a long and satisfying finish.
