Remhoogte 'Vantage' Pinotage
Tasting Notes: This star example of South Africa's signature Pinotage grape is full-bodied and bold, with intensely concentrated flavors of cassis, blackberry, dark cherry, and pepper on the palate, which is smoky and leathery. 'Vantage' is produced from low-growing bush vines for extra flavor concentration and elegance, fermented with wild yeasts, and then aged in partially new French oak for 20 months. It is a perfect pairing for venison and game meats.

With a similar climate and soil to Bordeaux, the region produces exceptionally complex wines. Remhoogte Wine Estate produces amazing small-batch values from some of South Africa’s best grapes. The estate focuses on minimal intervention, allowing the terroir and the grapes to tell their own story. All of Remhoogte’s wines are made using sustainable practices and are unfined and unfiltered (i.e., vegan!).
