2020 Michelangelo International Wine & Spirit Awards - Double Gold
The original Coffee/Chocolate style Pinotage
On the nose rich dark chocolate and powerful freshly brewed coffee styling, with a hint of mint and baked plums. The palate shows distinct characters of coffee and chocolate, which is balanced with smooth velvety tannins and a lingering aftertaste.
When it comes to coffee notes on Pinotage, Diemersfontein is still the standard by which others are measured, and rightly so. The Diemersfontein Pinotage is juicy and plump with soft tannins, allowing it to be enjoyed while still young. The nose translates onto the palate with the unmistakeable coffee as well as undertones of caramelised banana and blackcurrant making an appearance on the mid-palate.
Although this wine is a great partner to rich lamb casseroles and gentle Malay curries, the best companion for this wine is a rich, decadent chocolate dessert like Molten chocolate lava cake or Chocolate Pecan brownie, absolute heaven!
Diemersfontein Wine and Country Estate is picturesque and produces some of the most superb wines worldwide. The vineyard is situated near the Cape's famous Wine Routes and is highly respected in the wine community for its beauty and graceful elegance.
