The Den Pinotage Painted Wolf 2014

The Den Pinotage Painted Wolf 2017

The bulk of the Pinotage was destalked and fermented in tanks with various staves. Malolactic and maturation was completed on staves. Aprox 25% of the wine was fermented in small open fermenters and matured in small French and American oak barrels. The wine was finished by blending 15% of a Shiraz, Grenache, and Mourvedre blend.

Tasting Notes
An intense fruit packed wine with a smorgasbord of red and black summer berries, savoury spice and toasty wood flavors. The wine has fine bright tannins. It has a long fresh finish.

Food Suggestions
Pinotage is the best possible red wine in the world to pair with Mexican dishes such as Fajitas or that glorious confection of chicken, chocolate, cumin seeds, smoky ancho chilli, pumpkin seeds and sesame seeds which is called Mole. It is also very good with other flavoursome American regional specialties such as with Carolina Pulled Pork and smoky Texas B.B.Q beef rib.
