Pinotage Rosso Aaldering 2020


Pinotage by Aaldering is a full-bodied red wine that comes from the homonymous South African grape grown in the Stellenbosch area. The refinement in oak barrels for 2 years enhances the olfactory profile, which gives notes of ripe red fruit, berry jam, hints of undergrowth and nuances of spices and woods. The sip reveals a voluminous and elegant texture, of great intensity and enveloping softness

Pinotage from Aaldering is a red wine with great territorial character. It is produced from the grape variety of the same name, which has been particularly successful in South Africa due to its adaptability to the climate and soils of the Stellenbosch region. It is an intense and rich wine, warm and enveloping, characterised by a great fruit ripeness and a pleasant smoothness. It expresses above all aromas of ripe red fruit and nuances of jam. The long ageing in wood gives the wine a typically international profile, with elegant tertiary notes.

Pinotage wine is a South African speciality, which Aaldering Vineyards & Wines produces in a particularly prestigious version. It originates from a grape variety grown almost exclusively in South Africa, which was created by Abraham Perold in 1925 at the University of Stellenbosch. It is an original cross between Pinot Noir and Cinsault, a red berry grape from the south of France, characterised by a good amount of red fruit. Its rather early ripening and fruity richness soon made it a success, so much so that it became the flagship grape of South African viticulture. The Pinotage vines are cultivated in Devon Valley, at an altitude of about 150 metres above sea level, with a south-eastern exposure. Fermentation takes place at a controlled temperature in stainless steel vats.Before bottling, the wine rests for a period of two years in oak barrels, 40 % new.

The red Pinotage is an unusual and special label, which every wine enthusiast should taste to discover the characteristics of this typical South African vine. It is, in fact, the most characteristic red wine of the traditions of this New World country. It is ruby red in colour with slight garnet reflections. The bouquet is particularly rich and intense, with aromas of ripe red fruit, notes of berry jam, hints of spice and toasted nuances. On the palate it reveals a sunny and soft character, with dense fruit and a very harmonious sip with subtle and evolved tannins. The finish is warm and very persistent. If you have never tasted a Pinotage, don't miss this opportunity.
