This Backsberg Pinotage has notes of ripe cherry, coffee bean and sweet strawberry flavours are complemented by subtle undertones of dried herbs. This Pinotage has a juicy mouth-feel with supple, sweet tannins.
“The Backsberg family history in South Africa starts back at the beginning of the last century when grandfather Backs arrived on the shores of Cape Town as a penniless political and religious refugee from Lithuania. Graduating from working as a dockhand on the reclamation program around what today is the Waterfront, he started as a bicycle delivery “boy” and finally bought a butcher shop at Paarl train station. The story goes that one morning someone arrived at the shop and asked if he would be interested in buying a farm. Mr. C.L. Back thought this an excellent idea and sold the butchers shop to purchase what is today known as Backsberg Estate Cellars.
