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. Having matured for a few years, this wine has started to acquire the velvet density and luxurious chocolate and caramel flavours of its very early Lanzerac predecessors.
Nothing works better with South Africa’s unique grape than game, making this wine a great match for a peppered ostrich steak or perhaps a traditional potjie or bredie (stew).
