TASTING NOTE: Fans of Pinotage know that some styles favour smoky coffee notes while others highlight vibrant fresh fruit. This wine lands squarely in the latter camp. Bright red berry, cherry and plum are ever-so-subtly shaded by hints of smoky bacon, with nary a coffee bean to be found. It'd be great alongside BLTs or schnitzel.
