Ivory Creek Pinotage

Swiss International Air Lines Wine Award 2004 - Bronze
Highly rated by Wine Magazine
One of 43 top wines in Finland in 2003


This is a rich, full-bodied dry red wine. The alcohol, woodiness, fruits and tannins are well blended in this wine. The wine has a rich plum bouquet which is well sustained by an abundance of fruitiness on both the nose and palate. Enjoy with red meat. This wine will develop with age. A typical South African wine variety, a cross between Pinot Noir and Cinsaut with intense fruity flavours.
