Plums, red currants and baking spice intermingle beautifully on the nose. The palate has a juicy fruit core with velvety tannins and oak complexity. The finish is long, smooth and pleasantly dry. 

Grapes for the 2020 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
Blackened lamb burgers, smoked cheese, braised beef in a Porter reduction.

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.
