Mésa is an isolated flat-topped hill with steep sides, found in landscapes with horizontal strata. In Portuguese, Mésa is a table. Angus has crafted a wine to be enjoyed somewhere between the table and the mountain top.
His South African Pinotage is unlike any other.
Most of the juice has undergone semi-carbonic maceration, including whole clusters and then some destemmed grapes.
This makes for a fruity zippy wine bursting with freshness. Packed with bright red fruits, sweet gum drops and mild spice from the grape stems. The palate is pure bouncy, juiciness; light of body, fresh and delectable.
Unusually for a Pinotage, try serving this chilled.
Strong cheese are a good pairing.
