The Original Coffee Chocolate Pinotage, a first amongst equals is a unique style of Pinotage and is a perfect accompaniment to grilled meats, venison and dark chocolate desserts.
Diemersfontein Wine & Country Estate also offers the multiple awards-winning Diemersfontein Carpe Diem Pinotage Reserve 2011, which is praised for its sophisticated aromas of black current, cherries with hints of vanilla, followed by subtle tannin on the palate. It is a top classical wine with a lovely finish, harvested early in the morning, bunches and berries are small with an average bunch weight approximately 25g, which ensures the high extract of the wine. Having scored a hat trick of winning three times at the Old Mutual Trophy Wine Show, the impressive Diemersfontein Carpe Diem Pinotage Reserve 2011 is a must have wine. This wine compliments rich lamb casseroles and gentle Malay type curries.
