Pinotage Comes of Age

Pinotage Comes of Age, states The Wine Society. "Pinotage is a Cape calling card reinvented for today’s more demanding palate. It now comes in a multitude of styles and the best examples, from a range of climates, are fine, ageworthy reds".

And so the Society has decided it's time to include a Pinotage catagory in their Fine Wine List. 

The initial six are:
  •  Chamonix Greywacke Pinotage, Franschhoek 2011
  •  Beaumont Pinotage, Bot River 2013 
  • Neil Ellis Vineyard Selection Pinotage, Jonkershoek 2010
  • Radford Dale Frankenstein Pinotage, Stellenbosch 2013
  • Kanonkop Estate Pinotage, Stellenbosch 2011
  • Rijk's Reserve Pinotage, Tulbagh 2009 
The Wine Society has also added a Pinotage to their premium 'Exhibition' own label range. The Exhibition 2013 Pinotage is produced by Kanonkop and I suspect it's a re-badged 'Kadette' Pinotage.

The Wine Society, founded in 1874, is the world's oldest wine club and is a mutual society solely owned by its members.
