Two Cape Town lawyers hung up their robes and bought vineyards in Paarl in 1989. Their winery produces a well-made Chenin from a single vineyard on Paarl mountain, which gives a nutty aroma, flavors of salted peanuts as well as a touch of apple fruits. This wine needs to age for another year. Imported by Fairest Cape Beverage Co., Inc.
Rich, rounded and full of flavor, this successful Pinotage has an assertive, spicy nose and equally energetic flavors of red berry and smoke. It’s structured and serious, needing some time in the cellar, and should be paired with foods that can hold their own, like grilled lamb or a beef stew.
