Granite Ridge Pinotage
Since the 1920s, vintners have been honing Pinotage, a genetic hybrid of Pinot Noir and Hermitage (or Cinsault) grapes that yields a truly unique light red wine. South Africa’s Winery of Good Hope has perfected the hybrid, with a Pinotage that brings out the aspects of both grapes. In addition to the notes of cherry from the Pinot Noir, and the spiciness from the Hermitage, you'll enjoy a nice juicy palate with balance, length, and a bit of spice, especially if you drink it slightly chilled.
Monarch Glen Merlot
Monarch Glen Merlot is a tasty red wine that flaunts aromas of tangy cherry and sweet berries, leading into a clean, dry finish. Looking for a food to pair with this wonderful wine? Try herb-roasted chicken, or grilled rack of lamb with fresh mint.
