Tasting Notes

The 2014 vintage boasts mocha and coffee notes with complex meat, black cherry, raspberry and slightly candied aromas on a lush and full palate.

Technical Notes

The grapes were picked fully ripe. After harvest the berries were carted to the Parrl cellar where vinification and maturation took place. A combination of the finest Pinotage grapes, selected yeast strains, closely controlled fermentation temperatures and abundant oaking produces the unique taste profile.

Reviews

Bronze Value Medal - WineAlign World Wine Awards 2015 “Espresso coffee meets blueberry jam in this well-made version of the deliberate coffee-styled pinotage. Leather and smoke join sweet fruit, creating a smooth, mouthcoating rich red that is proven to have vast appeal. Well-established, dry farmed pinotage vines deliver super-ripened grapes that add the plush character to highly toasted oak flavours. I’ve read it described as ‘cat-nip for wine lovers’, and that pretty much sums it up.” DJ Kearney, WineAlign Tasted August 2015.
