Douglas Green Pinotage 2007

Douglas Green Pinotage 2007

Attractive deep crimson colour with blue tinges and a purple hue. Forthcoming ripe strawberry and raspberry fruit aromas with attractive vanilla spice complexity. Soft smooth medium-bodied entry with juicy red berry flavours. Ripe silky tannins and discreet spicy oak vanilla balance the fruit that fades into a soft pleasant berry aftertaste.

Overall: A medium bodied, lush, fruit driven wine with a soft juicy structure that is playful on the palate and extremely approachable for youthful undemanding drinking.

Smoked sausages, grilled ostrich fillet, duck with cherries, venison and pheasant casseroles, and meaty pasta dishes.
