Boland Cellar Cappupinoccinotage Pinotage 2017

It is with interest that we followed the so called Coffee Pinotage style as various brands made in this seductive style became available to consumers. While we could understand the reasons why this style was enjoyed by many consumers, including a great number of first time red wine drinkers, we had some concern regarding the inherent ability of the wine to keep on being interesting to consumers.

In our view, the quintessional earthiness and sweet red berry flavours of Pinotage were possibly being overporwered by too much wood in some cases. Would it therefore be possible to make a seductive wine with the focus on softer mocha and ground coffee flavours, while retaining the inherent fruity attractiveness of the cultivar?
