IN THE CELLAR

Though no actual coffee beans are used to create the intense coffee aromas and flavours found in this wine, there is no 'Caramilk Secret' at work here. The coffee tones are imparted by the toasted French oak barrels used to make the wine, and the reaction between the oak and the Pinotage yields the rich coffee notes.

FOOD PAIRING

This wine will be a smooth choice for grilled steak or smoked cheeses - and yes, dark chocolate too
