Punting the SA Pinotage



The humble Pinotage grape is extraordinary. I feel that it’s not received its due, especially since it apparently quite unfashionable among South Africans at the moment. I can’t for the life of me understand why. If there’s one varietal that we should be supporting, it should be Pinotage!

Leopards_leap_pinotage_shiraz
Created in South Africa, this grape is a cross between Pinot Noir and Hermitage and was only introduced to the world after apartheid was abolished. It has a distinctive, refreshing, fruity flavour with a banana-like taste, earthy tones and bramble fruit notes. Pinotage is used for fruity red wines capable of aging, blush, port style and red sparkling.

With a nose of dry plums, mulberries and vanilla, Leopard’s Leap Pinotage Shiraz offers well-balanced, spicy and peppery character with a firm tannin structure. Its best served with hearty stews, liver, quiche and cold meats.

Next time you’re at a restaurant or wanting to impress a guest, order a Pinotage. You’ll now know why its such a fantastic wine to enjoy.

Yours,
Eugene
