Catching up on my postings with @Delectable Wine this #pinotage was really good. Rich and smooth on the palate. Coffee dominates, but some caramel sweetness on the finish. Enjoyed while catching up on #suits episodes. Stands alone well. Give it a go.

Coffee flavor is intensive. Sometimes I feel this wine very sweet. The wine is not difficult.

Very complex - definitely taste flavours of mocha and dark cherries.

Agree with others that it is a great BBQ wine. On its own though, a few of us found it too sweet for our liking.

Black currant, high alcohol, very soft yet plentiful tannins. Has the coffee noted too
