Fleur du Cap Pinotage 2005





















The Fleur du Cap Pinotage 2005 is produced by Bergkelder, at Stellenbosch in the Western Cape region, the second oldest settlement in South Africa. Together with the Franschhoek and Paarl Valleys the Cape winelands. In these areas you find a Mediterranean climate, ideal for wine production.

This wine is entirely produced from Pinotage, the local grape variety with a rich fruit character and very smokey, earthy undertones.

The Fleur du Cap Pinotage 2005 has a deep ruby colour. On the nose it shows fruit and berry aromas dominated by plum. On the palate, it is full-bodied wine with rich and ripe plum flavours and, is supported by a good tannic structure.

It is recommended to grilled lamb, poultry, pork roasts and game fish and ideal accompaniment to classic Cape cuisine, such as Bobotie and Malay curries, as well as spicy Mexican food.

A great wine!!
