Kaapzicht Rooiland Pinotage 2020

Kaapzicht Rooiland Pinotage 2020

The red gravel soil in our hallmark Pinotage blocks gives these vineyards their name — Rooiland (red land).
Pinotage and its rich history is rooted in the Bottelary Hills, and with this wine we honour this unique South African cultivar in its classic style: intense, plush, and opulent. A full-bodied dry red wine.

Delicious served with barbecued ostrich steaks or springbok fillet from the braai.
