Backsberg Pinotage 2018

Backsberg Pinotage 2018

Ripe cherry, coffee bean and sweet strawberry flavours are complimented by subtle undertones of dried herbs. This Pinotage has a juicy mouthfeel with supple, sweet tannins.

The fruity style of this wine makes it lovely on its own as well as an ideal accompaniment to lamb, spicy food and hearty Italian dishes.

AWARDS

2020 John Platter - 83 Points
2019 Ultra Value Wine Challenge Awards - Gold

ageing : Best enjoyed within 5 to 7 years

in the vineyard : Hedged VSP vines - planted in dark, rich soils of Oak leaf and weathered granite - provide optimal conditions for this truly South African grape variety.

in the cellar : Due to its thick and tannic skin, colour is extracted from the Pinotage grapes within the first couple of days of fermentation. Early pressed, immediate oaking and bottled 12 months later, this Pinotage is true to its varietal fruit character.
