Tasting – Indwe Pinotage


Name: 2015 Pinotage
Producer: Indwe
Variety: Pinotage
Country: Coastal South Africa
Vintage: 2015
Price: $8.95
Wine Review: “A disclaimer: I have never cared much for Pinotage, the indigenous South African grape variety, but this Pinotage from Indwe, named after the country’s national bird, the blue crane, comes across like a light Pinot Noir. Subtle notes of cherries, spice and forest floor are followed by a round, light to medium-bodied, pure, seductive, well-crafted wine that should drink well for a year or so.”
My Review: Ruby purple in color, medium bodied.  Aromas of red raspberry, cherry and vanilla.  Tastes of tart, raspberry, and sour cherries.
