Painted Wolf Pinotage, The Den Series, Malmesbury and from Leeuwenkuil on the Agter Paarl/ Swartland border, South Africa, 2014
An intense fruit packed wine with a smorgasbord of red and black summer berries, savory spice and toasty wood flavours. The wine has fine bright tannins. It has a long fresh finish. Pinotage is the best possible red wine in the world to pair with Mexican dishes such as Fajitas or that glorious confection of chicken, chocolate, cumin seeds, smoky ancho chilly pumpkin seeds and sesame seeds which is called Mole. It is also very good with other flavoursome American regional specialties such as with Carolina Pulled Pork and smoky Texas B.B.Q beef rib.
