Wine & Food Pairing

The flavors of the 2007 Nederburg Pinotage consist mainly of aromatic red fruit. It's a dry, full bodied red wine with strong tannins and marked acidity. The aromas of this Pinotage are moderate and consist mainly of smoke, vanilla, and red fruit. It's not a sweet smokey smell, more a smoke you get when cooking meat.

Food Pairing
  • Cheddar Cheese: Pairing the 2007 Nederburg Pinotage with cheddar cheese is only fair — the Pinotage becomes drier but that's it.
  • Ostrich: When paired with ostrich meat, the 2007 Nederburg becomes less acidic and fruitier; the addition of pepper-jack cheese creates a lingering tingle. Eating ostrich with the Nederburg Pinotage is definitely recommended.
  • Buffalo: Pairing this Nederburg Pinotage with buffalo meat is also good, with the Pinotage becoming less acidic and more meaty.
  • Steak: The 2007 Nederburg Pinotage becomes more acidic as well as more fruity when paired with regular steak.
  • Salmon with Feta: When paired with salmon and feta, this Pinotage is less acidic and more fruity, though this effect is even better when an olive tapenade is added.

Overall, the 2007 Nederburg Pinotage should be good with almost any red meat but especially gamier meats like lamb, venison, ostrich, buffalo, etc. It should also be good with pasta and red tomato sauces and pizza.

Nederburg Pinotage

The Nederburg Pinotage isn't the best Pinotage I've ever had, but it's definitely a good one and it's definitely one you'll want to try if you're interested in exploring what Pinotage wines are like.
