MENU’s Wine of the Week. Bellingham Pinotage 2017

We tasted this at the Pinotage and Biltong Festival last weekend. This lovely wine is perfumed with roses and dark berries, incense wood, showing the Pinot Noir parent of Pinotage. On the palate, plums, mulberry, raspberry, black cherry fruit, very juicy, layered fruit, good supportive wood, some vanilla, with a hint of salt and crisp tannins. Then it mellows into long, soft, full flavours, very satisfying, with dark fruit remaining on the palate. The Cinsault parent shows there
We had a glass at home later with some dark chocolate and it is such a good match. Chefs and Sommeliers, do try this, we don’t think we have had a better red wine with chocolate. Good value at R83 on-line and Pick n Pay have it on special at the moment, but do check that the vintage is the same
