Darling Cellars, Chocoholic Pinotage, Darling, South Africa, 2018
Grape: 100% Pinotage with a portion aged on oak staves for 8-12 months.
A vibrant display of a wide range of fruit and flavours that includes Turkish delight, chocolate, red and black cherries, vanilla, red plum and butterscotch. Just to name a few…. The flavours follow through on the palate with an amazing structure and smooth supple tannins. This wine is perfectly balanced and well put together. This wine will tickle your taste buds and will be an amazing journey for all to experience the unique Darling terroir in a glass.
The "Chocoholic" is a concentrated, velvety and richly flavoured wine due to the 20% of appassimento style in the cuvée. Partial drying of the grapes on the vine, by twisting the stems of individual bunches, allows the sugars to be concentrated in the grapes which, after fermentation, creates a wine that is almost port-like in its richness. Off-dry in taste with a 9.6g/l residual sugar. Not a dessert wine, but definitely a wine for those who enjoy the sweeter things in life. The hint's in the name!
Awarded 95 points "Gold Medal" in the 2020 International Wine & Spirit Competition.
