Food Pairings for Saam Mountain Pinotage
Saam is Afrikaans for 'together'. The name captures the true essence of the team and their attitude towards viticulture at Eensaamheid Farm. Located at the foot of Perdeberg Mountain range, Saam Mountain Vineyards is a new South African venture that unites winemaking and farming. The area is known locally as the Mountain of Horses after the wild mountain zebra, the Quagga, used to roam there. Saam Mountain Vineyards forms under a group of 40 South African wine growers, spanning the premium growing areas from Paarl to the Durbanville Hills. The vineyards produce, on average, less than 7 tonnes per hectare - around half the average yields of other wineries of this scale, ensuring that quality of fruit and intensity of flavour is naturally at the heart of Saam Mountain's wines. This is a deep purple Pinotage with a typical plummy and black berry nose. The intensity of the fruit is carried on to the palate where it fills one’s mouth with juicy tannins and ripe, dark, fruit with hints of vanilla. The aftertaste is long, fruity and very elegant. Pinotage is well known for being a good food wine and pairs with most types of cuisine. Best enjoyed with tomato based dishes, spicy Portugese dishes, a tender steak or just on its own.
