The gripping, earthy flavors of this impressive Pinotage are true to the variety without frightening off fans of softer wine. Pinotage has a tendency toward angularity, but this wine, with its deep leather and coffee flavors and elegant minerality is accessible and, paired with meats like pork or grilled steak, will please palates overall. It needs to age though—at least 4 years.
