False Bay Pinotage
This richly-fruited, yet savoury and satisfying South African Pinotage is packed with plummy aromas with a faint hit of barbecued meat. The palate is full and rich with slightly rustic yet moreish tannins and an impressively long finish.

Perfect with pork belly dish or barbecued meats, boerwurst, game or good, old fashioned sausage and mash.
The grapes for False Bay Bush Vine Pinotage stem from a single vineyard of unirrigated bush vines in Stellenbosch. The attraction to this mature (planted in 1996), coastal, bush vine vineyard were the cooler temperatures and small, naturally balanced and concentrated berries. Made by Waterkloof’s talented young Cellarmaster Nadia Barnard. Balanced grapes are hand harvested, fermented spontaneously with wild yeast and then raised in large wooden casks (or ‘foudre’ en Francais). The resulting wine therefore, is perhaps more ‘Pino’ than ‘Tage’. No additions other than sulphur as a preservative. Grown, made and bottled in South Africa. Vegan friendly wine.
