The nose isn't particularly offensive with over-ripe fruit. Initial palate is likewise deep ripe currant and plum, but very heavy Latakia-tinted tobacco comes on strong. Perhaps if you really, really dig tobacco flavored wine you'll like this one. But there's a disturbing chemical finish that's really very awful. I agree with the "avoid" review.

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.

Aromas of spicy mulberries, plum pudding and cherries, supported by smoky bacon nuances. Juicy and accessible with a soft palate and a delicious fruit concentration.

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.

Winemaker's Notes:

Crafted in a soft, juicy, fruit-driven style, this light-bodied, agreeable red displays classic Pinotage aromas and flavors of spice, raspberries, plums and morello cherries, backed by smoky bacon nuances. Brambly with a slightly rustic edge, it’s a delicious and accessible intro to South Africa’s unique Pinotage grape, a cross between Pinot Noir and Cinsault.
