Fish Hoek Pinotage 2017

Fish Hoek Pinotage 2017

Ripe, juicy red fruit supported by subtle spicy tones. Upfront red plum and fruitcake flavours and well integrated subtle oak provides a delicious lingering finish.

An ideal accompaniment to braais, rare beef, roasted vegetables and mature cheeses.
