The Pinotage grape is warmed by the hot African sun and has a rich flavor and aroma. It produces dry wines of different styles, with a bouquet that is like a chameleon. Without proper experience it is not always possible to catch all the nuances, but this is what makes Pinotage wine so mysterious and appealing. It has notes of berries, red sweet bell pepper, licorice, nutmeg, marshmallow root, cinnamon and tobacco. The taste is warm, with a pleasant sweetness, and the trail is often caramel or with hints of herbs. Pinotage goes well with red meat and poultry, different kinds of cheeses, pasta, Asian noodles, spicy dishes and chocolate.
