Ernst Gouws & Co Pinotage 2020
The Gouws family’s winemaking heritage dates to 1691. With vineyards rooted in the finest Stellenbosch terroir, their modern-style wines are a true reflection of varietal character and fruit definition. The Ernst Gouws & Co Pinotage 2020 displays exotic spices and ripe red berry fruit with firm tannins. A classic example of the Pinotage varietal, this red wine is a crowd-pleaser with the warmth of cloves and sweet anise.
Mid-ruby; initially shy, but a further sniff shows some strawberries and new leather. Mid weight & dry, dense dark berries and ripe tannins hold close together in sinuous dance, move on to choc-tinged finish.
Sticky oxtail stew with lots of carrots, or Irish stew with potatoes and lots of parsley, or ostrich potjie with bacon.
