Stoneboat Vineyards Pinotage 2012

Oliver, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaI'm not a big fan of pinotage, especially the commercial stuff we see from South Africa but this cinsault/pinot noir cross seems to be digging in in BC. The '12 is one of the best yet offering pretty cherry mocha aromas and similar fruit with savoury black cherry fruit and some vanilla bleeding off the American oak barrels. Soft tannins and food-friendly, try this with grilled chicken to best effect.Tasted: 29 October 2014Tasted by: Anthony Gismondi and Stuart TobePrices:
