Barista Pinotage 2014
A burst of intense rich coffee and chocolate aromas with ripe nuances of mulberry, plum, and Maraschino cherries. Perfect with everything—as an accompaniment with different meat types, rich, creamy casseroles, or even the most controversial desserts! 100% Pinotage. Produced by Val de Vie Estate in the heart of the Cape Winelands, where wine production dates back to 1825. Val de Vie is a lifestyle estate offering world-class polo and equestrian facilities and is enhanced by vineyards, green pastures, the Berg River frontage, and endless views of the Franschhoek and Paarl mountains. Barista is a brand developed by Bertus "Starbucks" Fourie in conjunction with Vinimark The Wine Company, South Africa's largest independent specialist wine company who distributes and markets some of the country's best-known wine brands both locally and abroad. A Barista (of Italian origin) is someone who has an exceptional level of skill in coffee preparation and is known for his/her signature style of coffee - a term which aptly describes Bertus and the name of his wine. As a Coffee Pinotage wine, a style pioneered by Bertus over a decade ago, Barista draws out the coffee-like aromas from South Africa's signature Pinotage grape and is the creme of the Pinotage blends.
