Mary Ross, writing in Chicago’s Daily Herald says Pinotage is
‘the perfect wine with takeout’. She says
Pinotage is South Africa’s signature red. The best Pinotage offers saturated fruit with unique mulberry and blueberry aspects and chewy texture, often accented with appealing funk.To pair with the deep flavors of maheberawi (an Ethiopian mixed meat platter), slow-cooked barbecues, smokes and stews, wines from Man, Fairview and Robertson are great under-$12 Pinotage values. For finer cuts, Kanonkop is an established leader in racy and elegant red (about $40).
She also suggest Pinotage as a good choice with rotisserie chicken.
