Intense on the nose, with a bouquet of coffee, chocolate and cherry, with meaty, savoury hints. The tannins are ripe, perfectly suiting the round and mouth-filling plum and mulberry fruit.
- Drink on its own or with red meat dishes. Bertus’ recommends a blue-cheese-filled brandy snap with chocolate and roasted coffee beans!
This wine is like a black coffee from a 1920 Parisian Cafe in Algiers served with a little sugar and a cube of dark chocolate. A Pinotage with a little ‘je ne sais quoi’ in an Afrikaans accent. Love it or hate it, it is what it is.
