Southern Right Pinotage is 'a game changer'

Sommelier and columnist Holly Howell, writing in New York’s Rochester Democrat and Chronicle,  recommends Kanonkop Kadette Cape Blend 2014 and Southern Right Pinotage 2015 in the second of two articles* marking International Pinotage Day.

Holly says the Kadette

has the texture and body of a good Bordeaux.  But the flavors are definitely Pinotage-driven — ripe berries, roasted coffee beans, dark chocolate and smoke.

And the Southern Right’s nose

is reminiscent of a fine red Burgundy, with elegant aromas of black raspberry, autumn woods and baking spice.  But once you take a sip, you are welcomed to the New World with flavors of cassis, dark plum and cinnamon coffee. This wine is a game changer, and a must try for any Pinotage doubters out there.
