Spice Route Pinotage Swartland 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

An excellent example of quality Pinotage. The grapes were hand picked at optimum ripeness and were taken to the winery in perfect condition. Warm berry fruit flavours and tobacco spice make for a full-bodied and complex wine that has depth and tremendous concentration. A Pinotage that rivals the Rhone for spice and generosity, but with exceptionally ripe fruit to boot. Ideal with roast red meats, game and barbecued food - as tested at many a good 'Braai' in South Africa!

Pinotage 2008 - Spice Route: Pinotage 2008 - Rotwein von Spice Route WinesDieser moderne Spice Route Pinotage 2008kann sich einer großartigen Reichhaltigkeit an Frucht und saftigerAromen rühmen. Im Glas zeigt der Wein eine sehr dunkle Farbe und beimDuft erahnt man bereits seine enorme Konzentration. Die intensivstenAromen in der Nase sind reife Kirschen und Himbeeren, aber wirschmecken auch die klassischen süßen Bananen und Gewürze. Die Tanninekorrespondieren wunderbar mit dem kräftigen und ungestümen Körper desWeins. Dieser faszinierende, charaktervolle Wein zeigt in seinemunendlichen Nachhall nochmals sein reichhaltiges Aromenspektrum.Besonders lecker schmeckt er z.B. zu: Süßlich mariniertemStraußenfleisch, BBQ's, Spare Ribs mit Honey Sauce oder reifemParmiggiano.Weingut: Spice Route WinesLand: SüdafrikaRegion: PaarlRebsorte: PinotageInhalt: 0,75 lAlkoholgehalt: 14,75 Vol.%Säuregehalt: 6,5 g/lRestsüße: 1,75 g/lEmpfohlene Serviertemperatur: 16 - 18 °CFassreife: in Barriques gereift (14 Monate)Lagerfähigkeit: 5 - 7 Jahre ab Jahrgang Rotwein > Südafrika > Paarl - Franschhoek
