Nederburg Pinotage 2006

  • Area: South Africa, Western Cape
  • Grape: Pinotage
  • Alcohol: 14%

Description: This has the aromas of a classic pinotage; plums, cherries with subtle oak spice. The color is deep purple. On the palate, a splash of vanilla scented red fruit mellows into a firm finish of soft tannins. Shockingly good for 7.99, this is a favorite pinotage of ours. Decanting not required.

Food Pairing: quite good with spicy thai basil duck, pizza, red meats and dark chocolate
TV Pairing: The Mole, Twin Peaks
Musical Pairing: Morcheeba
