Tasting Notes

Pinotage is a cross between Pinot Noir and the Cinsault grape and is South Africa’s unique black variety. This oak aged Pinotage is smooth in style with strawberry fruit flavours and hints of vanilla.

After a brief fermentation on skins the wine was aged in oak for several months prior to blending and bottling.

About the Producer

For over 70 years, Douglas Green Wines have sourced and selected grapes to best express the South African wine land origins. In 1942, Douglas Green was already convinced that the quality and character of the varied vineyards of the Western Cape should not be confined, but rather combined to express the best of each region. They source only the best vineyards and growers from the best-suited regions for each variety to create their distinctive fruit-driven signature style wines.
