About the wine

Gloriously rich and ripe Pinotage from our Golden Girl
  • Your Golden Girl Carmen has been working on a parcel of perfect Pinotage.
  • Carmen is one of the exceptional winemakers who knows exactly how to work wonders with the tricky Pinotage grape.
  • With layer upon layer of ripe berry fruits, bags of complexity and a naughty lick of spice to finish - it's going to knock your socks off.

Best before
Drink now to 2025. This Catoria Coastal Pinotage 2017 is ripe, rich and complex. This wine has great balance of acidity, ripe tannins and depth of fruit, all components of a wine that can aging beautifully. With time the oak component will add a nutty component which will bring another dimension to this beautiful wine.

Serving advice
Serve at 15-17°C. Open/Decant 30+ minutes before serving

Food match
Karoo Lamb has most unique taste and flavour and I love enjoying a glass of Pinotage with this beautiful meat. Below a lamb shank recipe that I adapt to my taste. Slow-cooked Karoo lamb shank recipe Serves six Ingredients • 6 Karoo lamb shanks • 1 litre beef stock • 1 litre red wine ( not the Pinotage) • 4 bay leaves • 1 stalk rosemary ( I love to use 2-3 fresh tweaks ) • 2 sticks cinnamon ( even star anise , works beautifully ) • 6 small onions, peeled • 4 carrots, peeled and roughly chopped • 2 stalks celery, chopped • 2 leeks, chopped ( I love adding 4-5 as it makes the sauce thick and rich) • 150 g tomato paste • 50 g brown sugar ( I replace the sugar with apricot jam, 1 table spoon) • 100 ml olive oil ( I use a mixture of olive oil and duck fat) Cooking method 1. Turn oven to 160° C. Sauté onions, carrots, leeks, herbs and celery with oil in a large pot. 2. Add tomato paste and brown sugar. Cook for a few minutes and then add stock and wine. Bring to a boil. 3. Season shanks well and, in another frying pan, seal them off in a few drops of oil until golden brown. 4. Remove shanks from the frying pan and place into a deep roasting tin. 5. Pour over the sauce, cover with tin foil and place in the oven. 6. Cook for three hours until the meat is soft and almost falls off the bone. 7. Remove from the oven and move shanks from pan to a serving dish. 8. Strain the sauce and reduce to a thin jus in a saucepan. 9. Serve with roast vegetables and roast potatoes ( 2-3 tweaks of rosemary does the trick for me)

Meet the winemaker - Carmen Stevens

  • From humble roots, Carmen blazed a trail, to become head winemaker at a prestigious winery in South Africa. Her wines won medals by the truckload, yet she couldn’t even get a bank overdraft to start her own business.
  • That was until Angel funding allowed her to finally fulfil her dream of setting up her own winery. Carmen has gone from strength to strength ever since, winning countless awards (including being voted your Winemaker of the Decade!)
  • With your support, coupled with her sheer passion and determination, Carmen is helping to create a better future for South African children. Over the past 4 years, she’s raised over half a million pounds to feed hungry school children in the slums just 30 minutes from beautiful Stellenbosch.
