Simonsig Family Vineyards Pinotage Stellenbosch 2010

Member Review by Athon:

Classic nose, dirt, red currant, mulberry. Medium finish. Wicked good with food. My wife says it's an acquired taste...and hated this wine...more for me.

I don't know what to say here. Definitely unique. I can't say I liked it, but I didn't hate it. If you are reading this review I apologize for being useless. As Athon said, it's an acquired taste. i just have no shot at acquiring it.

I thought it was a bit medicinal, a bit band aid. I'm currently just starting out on understanding wines. It was an interesting wine.

Kräftiges Purpurrot. Ausgeprägte Brombeer-, Holunderaromatik mit rauchigen Noten. Am Gaumen rund und geschmeidiges Tannin.

Redhill Pinotage Reserve 2007 - Simonsig: Redhill Pinotage Reserve 2007 - Rotwein von SimonsigDie Trauben für den Redhill Pinotage Reserve 2007 stammen, wie der Name bereits erahnen lässt, von den bekannten "Redhills". Für diesen Rotwein werden sie von Simonsig separat vinifiziert. Aus verwittertem Granit und Schiefer entstand die rote Erden und wird als der beste Boden für den Anbau der roten Rebsorten der Region beschrieben. Ein dichte Farbe schimmert im Glas, die fast schwarz anmutet und am Rand kirschrot leuchtet. Das einladende Bukett vereint Himbeeren und Maulbeeren mit deutlichen, aber gut eingebundenen Eichetönen. Sein dichter Körper mit einer delikaten Frucht und die fein eingebundenen Tannine machen den Rotwein zu einem Trinkgenuss. Er passt wunderbar zu Wildgerichten und Rinderbraten.Weingut: Simonsig Family WinesLand: SüdafrikaRegion: StellenboschRebsorte: 100% PinotageInhalt: 0,75 lAlkoholgehalt: 14,5 Vol.%Gesamtsäure: 5,25 g/lRestsüße: 2,0 g/lFassreife: in Barriques gereift (16 Monate)Lagerfähigkeit: 6-10 Jahre ab JahrgangEmpfohlene Serviertemperatur: 16-18 °C Rotwein > Südafrika > Stellenbosch

Dense, opaque, with a black center and a youthful, cerise rim. The perfumed nose invites you to a playground filled with aromas of mulberry and raspberry fruit and serious, but subtle, spicy oak.

Dark Persian carpet red color that starts to open up at the center. The purity of sweet fruit aromas depicts a collage of vibrant raspberry and plum flavors. A touch of candy and a succulent berries contributes character to this generous varietal. The essence of the Pinotage grape is captured and elegantly released through the silky, polished tannins.
