Simonsig Pinotage 2014

This youthful wine with its vibrant ruby colour, entices with the sweet scented aromas of red berries and blueberries and just a touch of spice. Moulded tannins sculpture the palate with the soft nuances of dried prunes and red cherries. The finish is juicy and delectable.

Enjoy with hearty pastas and sundried tomato stew. Alternatively, South African dishes that would benefit from this wine include game dishes such as ostrich steak, springbok or kudu casseroles, and of course a traditional South African Braai.

Background
The first red wine released by Simonsig in 1970 was a Pinotage, a crossing of Pinot Noir and Cinsaut first developed by Professor A.I. Perold in 1925. The aim of this unwooded Pinotage is to accentuate the raspberry fruitiness of the Pinotage grape. Our best Pinotage is grown on weathered shale soils which makes deliciously perfumed Pinotage.
