Backsberg 2018 Pinotage, Coastal Region, South Africa

Available:  Sold Out $21.99
Size: 750.00ml
Planted in dark, rich soils of oak leaf and weathered granite - provide optimal conditions for this truly South African grape variety. Due to its thick and tannic skin, color is extracted from the Pinotage grapes within the first couple of days of fermentation. Early pressed, immediate aging in barrels and bottled 12 months later, this Pinotage is true to its varietal fruit character. Ripe cherry, coffee bean and sweet strawberry flavors are complimented by subtle undertones of dried herbs. This Pinotage has a juicy mouthfeel with supple, sweet tannins. The fruity style of this wine makes it lovely on its own as well as an ideal accompaniment to lamb, spicy food and hearty Italian dishes.
