Xai Xai can't meet demand for Pinotage

Pinotage at Xai Xai, New York City's only South African Winebar, has been so popular that they sold all their stocks less than two months after opening.

"The waiter told us that demand was so high for Pinotage that [Fairview Primo 2002] was the only one left at $78. They discounted it to $50, " reports Knight. "It was really good. Soft, with hints of berry - the age really mellowed out what I expected - with supporting tannins and a plush finish. It was wonderfully balanced, even getting better as it sat in the glass. Reminiscent of a fabulous Oregon Pinot Noir without the big bite."

Pinotages listed by Xai Xai include Darling Cellar's 'Onyx', Bellevue Estate's 'Tumara' and Ken Forrester 'Petit Pinotage'
