Tasting Note: Full bodied with dark berry and plum flavours and well balanced with complex aromas from French Oak barrels. A wine with a long lingering finish.
Pairs well with ostrich fillet with chocolate-chilli sauce, rack of lamb or a hearty beef stew should all pair well with this bold Pinotage.
