Pinotage, a real child of South Africa

The Pinotage grape variety is a cross between the two French grape varieties Pinot Noir and Hermitage. It was carried out in 1925 at the University of Stellenbosch and so the result is considered the only original South African grape variety. Pinotage is an early ripening strain that thrives well in full sunlight and slightly warmer temperatures. The grapes for the Hill&Dale Pinotage come from vineyards planted on granite soils. The grapes were harvested by hand. When fermented in closed stainless steel roto tanks, skin contact was reduced to a minimum and completed when the wine had reached enough color depth. The red wine was then aged in a combination of old 300-liter barrels from French, Eastern European and American oak barrels for an average of 12 months.

 

And this is how Hill&Dale’s Pinotage tastes

On the nose, the Hill&Dale Pinotage shows a complex interplay of dark, ripe cherries and plums, accompanied by warming spices such as cinnamon and cloves. On the palate it is wonderfully balanced, with a nice sweet-acidity game and soft tannin. This red wine is a good example of the potential of the Pinotage grape variety in the Cape region.

2018 Hill&Dale Pinotage

 

And the Hill&Dale Pinotage goes with it

The food-friendly, versatile Hill&Dale Pinotage goes best with a tasty snack, hearty grills, juicy burgers and smoked sausages of all kinds. We also love it with autumn mushroom dishes and salad with fried turkey or duck breast, ideally with apricots and roasted pine nuts.
