Backsberg Pinotage 2015

Ripe mulberry and sweet strawberry flavours are complimented by subtle undertones of dried herbs. This Pinotage has a juicy mouth-feel with supple, sweet tannins.

The sweet, fruity style makes it lovely on its own as well as an ideal accompaniment to a variety of lamb dishes.
