About Spier Pinotage...
In a nutshell: Classic South African Pinotage with a medium weight and a nicely rounded body.
The lowdown: Pinotage is South Africa's home grown grape variety and, in good hands like here, makes excellent wines. After fermentation in stainless steel 20% of the wine was matured in French oak barrels for 8 to 10 months with the remainder in stainless steel. The result is a wine with generous flavours reminiscent of sweet cherries and summer berries. There's a touch of smoke and smooth spice held together with attractively smooth tannins which lead to nicely long finish.
When to drink: An easy going Pinotage, but with enough oomph to pair well with pork, lamb chops, or burgers from the barbie.
