This is a fun and lively Pinotage that’s just screaming, “Take me to the park! Take me to the beach! Enjoy me next to a body of water on a warm day! Take me to a bbq and share me with all your friends!” This is an easy drinker for sure but not overly juicy. Straight out of the bottle the nose comes off as charred cherry wood and cherry skins; as it airs off, a sweeter red berry note starts to shine through. The palate only emphasizes that note, with lower tannins and a nice acidic balance, dark red cherry flesh and mingles with raspberry and finishes with a dry zippiness that made me keep coming back to the glass. For the price a nice, summery wine can’t get much better than this.

South Africa

- Now that it has adopted a multi-racial attitude, and now that the world has embraced its government and its exports, South Africa has become a major wine producer. Unfortunately, South Africa has had a difficult time joining the ranks of competitive winemaking countries. During the anti-apartheid sanctions in the 1980s, South African wine was dealt the huge blow when it was removed from the international market, and for political reasons it was quite difficult for wine producers to market wine to the black majority. Things are finally looking up for the wine industry here, and quality has never been higher. South Africa produces a grape cloned from Pinot Noir and Cinsault, called Pinotage, which is the country's unique varietal. Chenin Blanc (known as Steen) makes up one-third of its vines. Cabernet, Merlot, Pinot Noir and Shiraz are becoming increasingly popular as are Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay.
