About this wine

Dense, bright and deep in the glass, Darling Cellar’s Chocoholic Pinotage offers notes of scorched earth, damson jam and sweet raspberry liqueur. Vanilla richness and notes of crème brûlée lead to a full throttle palate of concentrated, mouth-coating richness. Redcurrant jelly and purple berried fruits, bitter-sweet cocoa notes and a bold, Amarone-like weight is balanced by a fabulous underlying freshness which cleanses and refreshes the palate. Outstanding with a range of cheeses and full bodied, seasonal dishes; Chocoholic is a supremely versatile, complex wine with a big handshake!

    string(569) "South Africa’s very own variety, created in the early 20th century by crossing Pinot Noir and Cinsault. A variety which the home nation has taken to its collective heart, in the right hands and with gentle, delicate handling in the winery, Pinotage is a lush, fruit driven, black cherry jam and white pepper styled variety. When the focus is more on a traditional feel, extended barrel maturation can bolster the variety into creating more of a Bordelais clone. Some great examples exist, famously from Kanonkop and Kaapzicht Estate; both to be found in Stellenbosch."
