    Crisp, citrus - smooth lingering finish. Enjoyed this with skewred spicy shrimp.

    Enjoyed this little gem with pork ribs from the barbeque - the combination heightened the smokey tinge while opening up the black currant I look for. This is a pinotage that is ready to drink.

    The first bottle with tonights steak dinner. Always a joy and safe to share -balance fruits and tanins please all, to point. Quaffable. Always love to have a bottle (or two) in the "corkers box" -

    I explore Pinotage because it is on its way in. It's relatively new. It's Africa, and The Toasted Hostess needs her Africa. It is complex and beautiful. As Pinotage goes, this has fewer earthy tones and the notes are note as hearty as some. Very drinkable with the steak, chile-cornbread and green beans we has for supper this evening.

    Served this little gem with a pork medallion and red pepper polenta. The acidity cleared the weight of the meal from my palette - the fruitier notes brought a bit of freshness to the event in my mouth. Spring is in the air - the first evening of summers promise set the backdrop for the meal and memory for this great Aussie wine.

    A really drinkable wine that got better with the pork medallion I was pairing with it. Well aged and balance - all of the character you would expect from a nice Shiraz

    The aromatics stopped me cold - currants to mocha that translate to a finely balanced wine what a pleasure. This South Australian Wine is a must try!

    Quaffing wine - with fish, pork or a late Spring Saturday afternoon. This is certainly NOT a tradtional French thing and that's just fine - it's bright, a little acidic, balanced and refreshing. I plan to make three or four really big cork board one day!

    Bring it on! This is such a fine tasting juice... I enjoyed the vanilla on the end.
