‘Founders’ Pinotage


This soft easy drinking wine with its fresh black and red berries, has hints vanilla and cloves on the nose. Oozing with red berries, black spice and well-rounded tannins on the palate, it is balanced with a lingering finish…


Pair with tomato based dishes such as pasta or pizza and a great choice with barbequed meats
