DSC03194Unique to South Africa, Pinotage is a cross between Pinot Noir and Cinsault, which was once known locally as “Hermitage.” (Hence “Pinotage”—say: PEE-no-tazh). This wine shows aromas of mocha and roasted coffee beans followed by juicy flavors of red raspberries, nutmeg and vanilla spice on the palate. Try it with smoked pork shoulder and rich, sticky barbecue sauce. $8
