Riebeek Pinotage contauns 20% of a blending component called Mocha.
The flavors of this unique South African grape varietal are complex and exciting with ripe plum and fruitcake all beautifully integrated and then finished with subtle oak for a lingering aftertaste.
Lovely with rare beef, barbequed lamb and casseroles. This versatile lighter style of Pinotage is also a lovely combination with spicy chicken.
Residual Sugar: 4.3g/l
Total Acidity: 5.5g/l
"The 2011 Reibeek Pinotage could be chilled like Beaujolais, as this is a lighter-styled wine, with hints of Christmas fruitcake, plum sauce and cherries all present in a very attractive, spicy style. It is round and well-made, and for someone who usually dislikes these wines intensely, this is quite drinkable and seductive. It should be consumed over the next year."
