Darling Cellars Chocoholic Pinotage


Darling Cellars Chocoholic Pinotage is vibrant and packed with some juicy cherry flavours that incorporate more complex nuances such as dark chocolate, plums and vanilla. It is smooth on the palate with loads of soft, sweet fruit. The chocolate notes in the finish really shine through with no trace of sweetness except for the fruit.

Darling Cellars Chocoholic Pinotage is made from the fruit of vines grown in the deep, decomposed granite soils of the slopes of the Darling Hills, where the warmth of the afternoon sun is tempered by cooling Atlantic breezes. A portion of the wine spent 8-12 months in contact with oak, adding complexity and layers of flavour.

Why we like this wine

Pinotage is not our favourite grape variety as many examples have a definite metallic edge. This is a great example of just what the wine should be without those nasty metallic notes. Richly flavoured with plenty of dark red fruit notes and a dark chocolate finish. A great example of South Africa's flagship grape variety.

  • Top example of Pinotage
  • Delicious red fruit flavours with chocolate notes too.
