Douglas Green Pinotage 1998

Rich deep velvet red, with purple hues.
Intense and complex, with raspberry, strawberry and vanilla coffee aromas. Round, smooth and complex with ripe red berry and dark chocolate flavours. Firm friendly tannins with a rich, lingering aftertaste. A complex, full-bodied wine, luscious and rich in flavours. Smooth to drink but has the potential to age for quite some time. The lingering fruity aftertaste makes it a very more-ish wine! An ideal companion with red meat dishes, ostrich fillet, game and robust stews.
