Hoopenburg Pinotage 2000

A full-bodied, complex Pinotage with a lovely strawberry and raspberry nose underpinned by fragrant organic, woody whiffs. The palate is soft and fruity yet firm with a dry finish. Imminently drinkable on its own and will complement Ostrich Medallions with peppered pineapple and red wine sauce.
