An interesting grape typically produced in South Africa, this Pinotage is a pleasant alternative to more typical Israeli Kosher offerings. Menthol dominates the bouquet, with background notes of dark fruit and purple florals. Black berry, anise and coffee appear in the dark, velvety-textured mouth and linger through the long finish. Definitely worth a try, and will probably surprise you.
