Pinotage started out as an experiment. In trying to create a Pinot Noir that could grow in South Africa’s climate, Abraham Perold crossed the grape with the higher-yielding Cinsaut. What resulted was something much bolder and higher in tannins than Pinot Noir, but is now South Africa’s 2nd most planted grape varietal.
While Pinotage’s boldness makes it a fantastic companion for barbeque, Riebeek Cellars’ Pinotage is a lighter style making it more versatile and compatible with that and other dishes like spicy chicken. Notes of fruitcake and plum come together with a subtle oak finish for a pleasing pairing journey.
