Wine of the Week for April 17, 2006

Two Oceans Pinotage 2005 - $9.55
Style: R2
South Africa

This one is for fans of this funky South African original. The aromas suggest salami, plums, dark berries and vanilla. There's lots of presence on the palate, with a crisp acidity, firm tannins and blackcurrant flavour, and just a hint of gaminess at the tail end. It's a bit tamer than some -- quite juicy and yummy -- but still with that touch of gaminess. Try it with chilli or cannelloni. (LCBO 592378)
