Dornier Pinotage 2013

This wine shows black cherry, dark berry and cassis on the nose, with hints of tobacco and nutmeg. The palate is bursting with ripe plum, vanilla bean, violets and bramble. The wine has a full palate with a lovely freshness, and finishes with a pleasant chalky tannin profile.

This wine pairs well with ostrich, beef fillet and lamb dishes. It also has the unique ability to pair with dishes that have elements of spice in them, such as mild chicken curries and Bobotie

in the vineyard : The vines are planted on a sandy, alluvial soil at a very low elevation. The site is cooled by the south easterly wind, providing the vine with a longer hang time for the fruit. Ripening is slowed and the grapes achieve phenolic ripeness and lower sugar levels. The 2012 vintage provided a cool February, resulting in wonderfully balanced and flavourful fruit.
