Just as Malbec has soared in Argentina and Shiraz triumphed Down Under, so Pinotage is South Africa’s trump card red – with a distinctive spicy, coffee nose and sumptuous, rich berry flavours. And The Grinder is a textbook example of the quality good Pinotage can achieve – with instant success at one of the world’s most important wine shows. The grapes were picked at the last possible minute for optimum ripeness (and that lovely velvety feel in your mouth) from three premium vineyard sites. But the first thing you’ll notice is the wonderful mocha roast coffee bean nose. Perfect with grilled spare ribs and savoury sauces.
