Pinotage is celebrated as South Africa’s only ‘indigenous’ grape variety. A crossing of Pinot Noir and Cinsault, it exhibits the juicy red fruit of its parent cultivars, with hints of a darker, wilder side. Thanks to gentle pressing, Tread Lightly Pinotage is made in a light, fragrant and ripe style. Stewed cherry, coffee bean and sweet strawberry flavours are complemented by subtle undertones of dried fynbos. With its juicy mouthfeel and supple, sweet tannins, this Pinotage is ideal for pairing with a wide range of dishes.
The newly refreshed Tread Lightly brand is the embodiment of parent farm Backsberg’s sustainable approach. Central to Backsberg is a sincerely generous attitude to the world and a wealth of stories and anecdotes that are human and distinctly heartwarming, which translates into seamlessly excellent wine.
The Tread Lightly range celebrates the lighthearted side of Backsberg’s sustainable initiatives, paying special tribute to the key women who are responsible for growing and crafting these delicate, aromatic wines.
