Ken Forrester Pinotage Stellenbosch Petit Pinotage 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

Unwooded, huge dollops of ripe berry fruit on the nose, inky red/black color with bright hints. Soft and rich on the palate, with a delicious fruit concentration.

Juicy smoky smooth. Not bad to bring to a party.

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.

Like lots of the stronger pinotages, this one tasted of corn and petroleum, trailed by dark berries. As unflattering as this description sounds, I liked it. Because of its savory, gamey quality, it pairs well with goat and sheep cheeses. It was wonderful with a Manchego cheese.

Petit Pinotage 2008 - Ken Forrester: Petit Pinotage 2008 - Rotwein von Ken Forrester Der Ken Forrester Petit Pinotage 2008 ist der perfekte Wein zu Ihrem Lieblingsessen. Ken Forrester selbst besitzt ein Restaurant und weiß wie er beide Leidenschaften vereinen kann. Im Glas zeigt der Wein eine tintenhafte, rotschwarze Farbe mit helleren Reflexionen am Rand und im Bukett finden wir einen Schwung toller Aromen von Maulbeeren und Kirschen. Dieser saftige, weiche und reichhaltige Wein, ist sehr zugänglich und zeigt eine köstliche Fruchtkonzentration. Probieren Sie ihn auch einmal zu kräftiger Pizza und Pasta.Weingut: Ken ForresterLand: SüdafrikaRegion: StellenboschRebsorte: PinotageInhalt: 0,75 lAlkoholgehalt: 14,0 Vol.%Säuregehalt: 5,5 g/lRestsüße: 5 g/lEmpfohlene Serviertemperatur: 16 - 18 °CLagerfähigkeit: 3 - 5 Jahre ab Jahrgang Rotwein > Südafrika > Stellenbosch
