2018 Wightman, Gouws & Clarke Dry Red (Pinotage)

Swartland, South Africa

100% Swartland Pinotage that's been whole bunch fermented and partially carbonically macerated for a week and then sees old oak for around 6 months. This all makes for a fresh, vibrant, juicy, new wave style of Pinotage. The fruit spectrum on the palate consists of cherries, plum, fynbos and red currants with a long saline finish. Drink around the barbecue while snacking on South African sausage and lamb chops.
