Mooiplaas Pinotage 2013

Ruby red colour, nose very typical of Pinotage, sweets and fruit cake nose, oak well integrated, soft and fruity with a good finish. The oak portion is very much to the back of the wine, the style is still the approachable, soft and drinkable wine that the Mooiplaas Pinotage is known for.

Charcuterie, roast chicken, Cape Malay spiced dishes, roast pork, roast lamb, pizza & pasta dishes. Pinotage also works particularly well with flame grilled meats.
