Mellasat White Pinotage 2017

Mellasat White Pinotage 2017

The world’s first White Pinotage “The paradox of this wine is that the eye belies the other senses! Making white wine from red grapes using South Africa’s unique Pinotage grape. Whole bunch pressing prevented the juice from obtaining colour from the skins. Barrel fermented and matured for eleven months with lees stirring gives this wine a slightly creamy, nutty character to balance the tropical fruit and banana flavours.”

Food pairing suggestions include strong flavoured fish and seafood, mild curries such as bobotie and chicken korma, and some Asian foods.
