Jamie's 'edgy funk'
My old mate Jamie Goode - the Wine Anorak has never been a fan of Pinotage so I was pleased to see him giving a try to the inexpensive Ken Forrester's Petit Pinotage 2005. Jamie says "By not taking Pinotage too seriously - and interpreting it as a good-time, slightly off-the-wall variety - Ken has made an attractive, juicy berry fruited red with some green herbal and medicinal Pinotage funk, in a format where this funk helps add to the fun character of the wine. I'd serve this wine slightly chilled with honest, rustic fare. It has edges, and these are all too often lacking in inexpensive wines. The packaging is great, too." See
