The Eikendal Pinotage elegantly integrates oak with seductively ripe red-fruit flavours. The nose holds tempting aromas, heavy with cherry, plum and rich dark chocolate notes. Warmly spiced oak qualities are assimilated into the flavour profile with finesse. As can be expected of this uniquely South African cultivar, the wine has a refined tannin structure and wonderful berry juiciness. The Eikendal Pinotage makes a wonderful companion to Italian fare and strong hard cheeses. Serve with a thin-based pizza topped with buffalo mozzarella and prosciutto for a relaxed and enjoyable meal.
