Backsberg Cellars has been producing wines in South Africa for 3 generations. They are committed to sustainability, producing carbon neutral wines, and follow many environmentally friendly practices, including using lightweight bottles. The 2016 Backsberg Pinotage is grown in sandy clay soils, with a west, southwest elevation. Fermented on the skins for 4 days, the grapes are pressed and flash pasteurized. You'll get delicious blackberry and fruitcake on the palate. The wine is juicy, with a suppleness on the mouth, along with sweet tannins. The wine works well with spicy dishes and flavorful meat dishes, too. Silver Medal, Best Buy, tastings.com Kosher, Kosher for Passover, Mevushal.
