Rossouw, Gouws & Clarke ‘Dry Red’ Pinotage 2019Swartland, South Africa
In 1925, Abraham Perold, the first Professor in viticulture at the University of Stellenbosch, fused Pinot Noir and Cinsault (known in South Africa back then as Hermitage) to create Pinotage – the varietal that’s since become the pride of South Africa. It just so happens to also be the particular obsession of Rossouw, Gouws & Clarke.
An homage to Pinotage in its lighter, more youthful form and crafted using organic fruit from half-century-old vines, the Dry Red sings of the ardent passion these wine enthusiasts have for Pinotage — and the obvious joy they get from creating it.
Expect to findA vibrant basket-load of just-plucked raspberry and cherry, coated with warming clove, ground cinnamon, and a dash of turned earth. Its silky smooth and seductive on the palate - those that enjoy Pinot Noir will enjoy this South African expression.
