Lanzerac, Pinotage. 2014 [J2]
Nobody’s been bottling Pinotage longer than Lanzerac and this wine shows a wealth of experience with this proudly South African variety. Smoky-soft top notes combine with black plums and cherries, hints of polish and leather. Juicy, well-integrated tannins support a spicy, meaty core with a refreshing acidity and long smooth finish. Nothing works better with Pinotage than game and this is a great match for a peppered ostrich steak or perhaps a traditional potjie or bredie (stew).
