The Lanzerac Pionier Pinotage is a tribute to the first world’s first bottled Pinotage – a 1959 Lanzerac Pinotage.
The 2017 Pionier has an excellent deep colour, with typical varietal aromas like ripe, plummy red fruit on the nose and palate. A big mouth-feel, complex and velvety pallet and long and lingering aftertaste rounds off this wine perfectly. With 5 to 10 years maturation the Pionier Pinotage 2017 will start to acquire the velvet density and luxurious chocolate and caramel flavours for which its predecessors is known.
The Pionier Pinotage 2016 pairs perfectly with flavourful dishes such as loin of venison with confit potato and juniper jus, lamb boti Kabab with pounded spices and yogurt marinade or Sous vide duck leg with bulgur wheat and cherries.
