Like its famous ancestor, Pinot Noir, the uniquely South African Pinotage grape variety can be difficult to grow, but in the right hands makes wines of great power, fruit and complexity. The False Bay Pinotage is such a wine.
Just east of Cape Town, the vineyards of False Bay benefits from mineral rich soil and South Africa’s signature maritime climate, producing wines with Old World structure, and New World fruit intensity.
The False Bay Pinotage is a dark and rich wine, possessing a varietally typical smokiness, with red berries and hints of pepper. The palate is deep with juicy red and black fruits and fresh tobacco leaves.
Pair with roasted meats or Mushroom Masala.
