WoTM - Simonsig Redhill Pinotage 2010
My Wine of the Month for November is Simonsig Redhill Pinotage 2010. Not old enough to have reached its peak, but absolutely scrummy now. Complex flavours of plum and black berries with a stiffening of tannins and a beautiful silky texture that caress the throat.
The Redhill comes from a vineyard growing on a low hill of red soil that rises behind the winery. Redhill Pinotage is consistently good, and a deservedly regular winner of Top 10 and other accolades.
