The Liberator Episode 33 - Born Under a Bad Sign Pinotage

85% Pinotage
15% Cabernet Sauvignon

The title, inspired by the classic blues song, first recorded in 1967 by Albert King, with its topical astrological reference, fits the wine and label perfectly.

Once infamously described by one winemaker in the Cape as ‘The bastard son of Pinot Noir’, Pinotage rarely gets a good press – even within a nation which somewhat naively considers it South Africa’s ‘signature’ variety.

 

I can’t read, haven’t learned how to write
My whole life has been one big fight
Born under a bad sign
I been down since I begin to crawl
If it wasn’t for bad luck
I say I wouldn’t have no luck at all
