Californian v South African Pinotage. Add/Read Comments
Snooth Wine Search:
Peter May in his latest Pinotage club newsletter details a tasting comparing Pinotage from California, New Zealand and South Africa. I wonder if they have missed the unique style of South Africa Pinotage as they state that "Cape wines were marked down for high acidity and a 'dirty nosed' 'barnyardy' aspect, blamed on Brettanomyces, which "most California winemakers regard as undesirable and a product of poor winemaking."
