Comments
Winemaker’s Comment As Pinotage being the biggest partner in the blend, it makes itself stand out with tones of coffee, mocha and chocolate. Still a wine to be enjoyed with friends or a hearty meal. This wine boast with aromas of vanilla, raspberry, red cherry, mulberry, plum and herbal notes. A soft entry with a firm middle palate with flavours such as black current and plums.
