Plums, cherries and mulberries on the nose with hints of warm baking spices. The palate has a juicy fruit core and good concentration with velvety tannins and some oak complexity. The finish is long, smooth and pleasantly dry.

Grapes for the Barista Black were sourced from the best vineyards in the Western Cape. The wine was fermented in a combination of stainless steel & concrete tanks with two gentle pump overs a day. It was then matured in oak for 16 months with 20% of the wine aged in first-fill French barriques.

Food Pairing
This full-bodied wine partners well with darkly braised lamb shoulder on long grain rice with red cabbage & bacon kimchi or seared duck breast & mixed baby leaves
salad with potato stack.

The Estate
The Barista Pinotage is a cult hit. It’s made by the legendary winemaker, Bertus Fourie. He’s nicknamed ‘Starbucks’ for his exceptional skill in drawing out the coffee-like aromas of South Africa's signature grape. And it shows here. This has an intense nose of coffee, chocolate and cherry, with savoury notes on the finish.
