Ken Forrester Petit Pinotage 2018

This cheerfully Petit Pinotage reflects the modern fruit driven wine style that is in huge demand today. Classic Pinotage aromas of spicy mulberries,
plum pudding and cherries, supported by smoky bacon nuances. Juicy and accessible with soft palate and delicious fruit concentration.

This cheerfully unwooded wine can be served with a generous slice of pizza or a barbeque, ideal for a “braai”. Perfect with almost any happy casual
occasion!
