Drakenskloof Pinotage 2016

Western Cape, South Africa 14% abv

£9.99

Rich damson with exotic notes of smoke, earth, coffee bean and liquorice. No other grape produces flavours quite like Pinotage! Winemaker Frans Smit used old-vine fruit for extra intensity and aged the wine in a combination of American and French oak, softening the tannins and adding notes of spice to the ripe berry flavours.

Smooth enough to be enjoyed on its own, but even better with rich food such as chorizo and butter bean casserole or spicy ribs.

From the award winning Spier estate, this barrel matured red is a fine introduction to South Africa's national grape.

 

The Rustler Pinotage 2016

Western Cape, South Africa 14% abv

£9.49

Pinotage is South Africa's trump card grape - with a distinctive, spicy, coffee aroma and rich berry flavours. Made by champion Bruce Jack, a former Winemaker of the Year, this is a fresh, fruity style of red with a touch of tobacco from oak ageing. A bold, rich wine with powerful fruit, velvety and weighty, this red requires hearty fare as accompaniment - grilled lamb or a casserole are spot on.

 

Grill House Shiraz Pinotage 2017

Western Cape, South Africa 14.5% abv

£10.99  

Many Cape winemakers show a preference for either Pinotage or Shiraz. Bruce Jack loves them both and Grill House is his ode to their mutual compatibility. Bruce is a multi talented winemaker, having worked his way around the world, he started his own cellar in a former dynamite factory on the Cape Town waterfront.

Bruce has a natural instinct for what makes a great wine but, be warned, this one has a deep undertow of spicy black berry fruits that drags you into the glass and refuses to relinquish its grip until the bottle is empty. So don't try this alone. Share with friends and a sizzling steak or casserole.
