TASTING NOTES
Youthful purple, fresh in color. A coffee, mocha explosion with dark chocolate, rich black fruit, almonds and black cherries on the nose. All these elements follow through adding complexity and depth on the palate. Light to medium body with firm, well integrated tannins. Lovely fruit and wood balance, this wine is made to enjoy young.

WINEMAKER'S NOTES
Pinotage from premium vineyards harvested mid - February. Only superior quality free run wine was used. 24 hour cold soaking with the addition of yeast thereafter. Color and aroma extraction was done applying three pump-overs per day. Fermentation lasted six days. The wine underwent 100% malolactic fermentation done in combination with dark toasted French oak. The wine was filtered and bottled in September 2014.

SERVING SUGGESTION
Serve with rich Christmas pudding, chocolate confectioneries, Duck a l'orange, Ostrich and most rich meat dishes.

CHEF'S SPECIAL
Dark chocolate truffles
