Painted Wolf Pinotage
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.
The bulk of the Pinotage was destalked and fermented in tanks with various staves. Malolactic and maturation was completed on staves. Aprox 20% of the wine was fermented in small open fermenters and matured in small French and American oak barrel. The wine was finished by blending 10% Shiraz.
Food Pairing Notes
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 flavorsome American regional specialties such as with Carolina Pulled Pork and smoky Texas B.B.Q beef rib.
