An intense, rich wine packed with flavors of ripe blueberry, mulberry and mocha, exotic spice and creamy vanilla with evident ripe tannins and a long lingering finish.
Guillermo Pinotage is a great partner spicy savory Mexican and south western dishes, such as carne asada, birria, bbq Texas hot links or brisket. It is also delicious with Indian dishes such as Lamb Rogan Josh or Biriyani.
Aromas of dark forest berry, smoke, cigar-box spice and tobacco leaf immediately waft from the glass of this forward and robust Pinotage. The wine’s boldness continues to shine on the full palate, loaded with gripping tannins and layers of blackberry, boysenberry, roasted cocoa nib, pepper and toasted oak flavors. Drinkable now, but should benefit from some time in the cellar; try after 2015. Editors' Choice.
The 2010 Guillermo Pinotage from Swartland is blended with 10% Merlot and 4% Grenache. It shows impressive purity on the nose with scents of macerated dark cherries, wild strawberry and raspberry. The oak is beautifully integrated. The palate is medium-bodied with grippy tannins. It has very impressive focus, a Pinotage a little aloof and masculine, but with style and class.
Bright, dark red. Perfumed aromas of black raspberry, blueberry, spices, game and smoke reminded me of syrah. Sweet and smooth on the palate, with ripe acidity framing the black and blue fruit flavors. Nicely structured pinotage with suave, building tannins and very good length. And an excellent value.
