Wine – Grillhouse Review

Today’s vintage is the Grillhouse Western Cape, a 2016 Shiraz Pinotage from South Africa.  It comes in at a slightly stronger than normal 14%.

First impressions of the bottle are that the label is a bit tacky but at least it fits the name of the wine.  The smell is deep and rich with a hint of cherry, and overall very nice.

On to the taste and without food it is quite sharp and acidic; I wouldn’t drink it on its own.  We then tasted it alongside the beef brisket we had cooked; although it was slightly improved we still couldn’t get past the sharpness and acidity.

Unfortunately this isn’t one I will buy again.
