Prodigy Pinotage 750Ml

KSh 1,975.00

The prodigy, by definition, refers to a young person with exceptional qualities or abilities. The same attributes that you will find in this joyous Pinotage wine. Unlike his older siblings, the original Diemersfontein’Coffee/Chocolate’ style Pinotage and the Diemersfontein Carpe Diem Reserve Pinotage, this wine exudes the unique, youthful and vibrant characteristics of this truly South African varietal. As the new kid on the block, the Prodigy emanate rich flavours of dark red fruit like mulberry and black berry on the nose followed by strawberry, cherry and plum on the palate all wrapped in a subtle hint of a well-balanced oak component. South African staples, Bobotie, Bunny Chow and Braai, all beg for a glass of Pinotage. Its versatility makes it a great partner with roast duck, lamb casseroles and even Chocolate soufflé. Again, by the definition of the word prodigy – an outstanding example of a particular quality.

Description

Pinotage is South Africa’s very own grape and a must-try for anyone looking to expand their viticultural horizons.

This grape is a genetic cross between picky Pinot Noir and prolific Cinsault, aka Hermitage. Created by scientist Abraham Perold in 1925 at Stellenbosch University, Pinotage was made by and for South Africa.

These small, thick-skinned grapes create deep, inky wines with distinct, bold flavors. Look for black and purple fruit notes like blackberry, plum, black currant, figs, maybe even a slight touch of banana. Go deeper and you can expect hints of smoke, hoisin sauce, rooibos, tobacco, bacon, and grilled meats.

A bottle of Pinotage can be drunk young but becomes especially good with a bit of age as the flavors soften and deepen.

This is a wine that goes great with the charred smokiness of a summer BBQ – that’s ‘Braai’ if you’re in South Africa. Pinotage loves grilled lamb and veggies, a burger, or a creamy plate of vegetarian dhaal.
