On the nose an explosion of mocha coffee, black chocolate and roasted nuts with undertones of caramelized banana and blackcurrant. The ripe subtle tannins create a wine to be drunk very young.

This unique style of Pinotage is a perfect accompaniment to salmon, roast venison and even chocolate mouse.
