Painted Wolf Wines, The Den Series Pinotage 2015, South Africa
Grape variety, 100% Pinotage, harvested from the Langvlei and Leeuwenkuil vineyards on the Agter Paarl / Swartland border
An intense fruit packed wine with a smorgasbord of red and black summer berries, savoury spice and toasty wood flavours. The wine has fine bright tannins and 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 chilli, 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.
