2246 visitors
Pinotage is a red wine grape that is South Africa’s signature variety. It was bred there in 1925, and typically produces deep red varietal wines with smoky, bramble and earthy flavours, sometimes with notes of bananas and tropical fruit, but has been criticised for sometimes smelling of acetone. Pinotage is often blended, and also made into fortified wine and even red sparkling wine.
More information on Pinotage
Food Pairing: Pairs well with tuna, swordfish or grouper. Strong game meats such as rabbit and venison, as well as heavily sauced beef dishes, are balanced by a Pinotage. Great with a rich dessert cake or chocolate souffle.

2004 Syrah, Dorothy's Vineyard
Dry Creek Valley

The lure of rich yet subtle aromas � dark skinned fruit, leather and vanillin oak � belie the amazing flavors to come. Robust and mouth-filling, the intense juicy core of black ...moreberry and plum also reveals hints of cocoa and fresh leather.

2005 Redbird Canyon Red

After last years resounding success, our Redbird Canyon Red is again a unique blend of Pinotage and Petite Sirah. All are grown on the estate of Vino Con Brio at the Amorosa Vineya ...morerd.

Pinotage is a grape developed in South Africa in the 1920’s. A cross between Pinot Noir and Cinsault (aka Hermitage) it was an effort to bring the characteristics of Pinot Noir to a variety that could be grown in a warmer climate. Rarely grown outside of South Africa the variety has remained in some obscurity. Vino Con Brio has the largest planting of Pinotage outside of South Africa at mere 8 acres.

From the first enticing aromas you can tell that this is not Cab or Merlot or any other familiar variety. Exotic spice (allspice and cinnamon), black pepper and hints of chocolate provide an entrance to the full jammy flavors. Rich and full-bodied the wine is very supple and finishes with lingering blackberry and sweet oak. Tasting great right now this wine will add to any rich cuisine, wild game or BBQ fare and should be age gracefully for another three years.
