BARISTA PINOTAGE 2019
This wine is produced in 100% new French oak. They flew to the cooperage where the oak is produced and worked with the coopers on what we call the ‘Barista House Toast’ profile, which is used for a particular portion of the wine. The focus is to guarantee a homogenous, complex style where coffee, chocolate and fruit aromas amplify each other’s intensity.
Taste: A burst of intense, rich espresso coffee and creamy chocolate aromas with nuances of ripe mulberries, plums and Maraschino cherries follow through onto the palate which is silky smooth, soft and luscious and enhanced with gorgeous notes of vanilla and butterscotch from the toasty oak ageing.
Rated: 4.3 stars (out of 5) and ‘The Best Barista Pinotage Vintage to Date’ on Vivino.com (5689 ratings), a website trusted by millions to discover and buy the right wine.
