The Amandelboord Pinotage presents a beautiful intense, deep purple colour with a magenta meniscus. Maraschino cherries, black plums, prunes and banana-flavoured Wilson toffee aromas are depicted on the nose, followed by medium acidity and medium alcohol. The palate presents young tannins that will soften with age and aeration. A slight toastiness is detected on the mid-palate followed by sweet, stewed prunes.
Serve slightly chilled with pepper-crusted seared tuna steaks, grilled aubergines stuffed with a tomato compote, a rack of Karoo lamb straight from the grill, or char-grilled sticky beef short ribs on a bed of soft polenta.
