The Simonsig Redhill Pinotage 2013 is a rich and robust red wine from South Africa. The grapes for this wine were grown on the rolling red hills of the Simonsig estate in Stellenbosch. Barrel aging in small French oak barriques lends elegant spice and structure to this Pinotage.
 
A deep opaque color in the glass, this wine shows opulent flavors of ripe plum and maraschino cherry. The palate is balanced and graceful, with polished tannins and layers of cedar oak spice. This is a delicious wine to enjoy with meals like seared tuna or roasted rack of lamb.
