Darling Cellar's Chocoholic Pinotage is concentrated, velvety and richly flavoured due to the 20% appassimento style in the cuvée.

A vibrant display of fresh fruit and flavours that includes Turkish delight, chocolate, red and black cherries, vanilla, red plum and butterscotch. The flavours follow through on the palate with a fresh acidity, good structure and smooth, supply tannins.

All grapes were hand harvested and de-stemmed prior to fermentation on skins for 5-6 days. A portion of the wine spent 8-12 months on staves to add complexity and layers. The blend includes a straw-wine component made from partially-dried Pinotage grapes and made into an almost port-like wine. These grapes were dried by twisting the stems.
