Tasting notes
Pinehurst is the Moreson estate’s vin de table range, and, as table-wine pinotages go, this one is a bit expensive. But the quality of the grapes – which derive only from the estate’s boutique-sized vineyards – shines through. The classic pinotage pluses – candy-like fruitiness and fine-grit mouthfeel – are there without the classic minuses – cough mixture sweetness, most notably – and the wine makes a great fit for a spicy meal.
