For three generations the Sonnenberg family have been
creating Diemersfontein moments on this iconic estate in Wellington.
What started as a family retreat, is today the home of the
world-class Diemersfontein range of wines, countryside hospitality, backed by a
story of upliftment and empowerment.
FROM THE SAME SOIL, UNITED BY MUSIC AND EXPRESSED THROUGH
It was with pure accident that then Diemersfontein
winemaker, Bertus Fourie, discovered this unique style of Pinotage 21 years
ago. He accidently used the wood staves earmarked for the Diemersfontein Shiraz
on a tank of the Pinotage and was blown away with the dominant flavours of
coffee and Pinotage that this little mistake produced on the Pinotage. Well,
lucky for us all, this mistake became the Diemersfontein 'go-to'wine when the
first and original coffee/chocolate style Pinotage was born!
On the nose rich dark chocolate and powerful freshly brewed
coffee styling, with a hint of mint and baked plums. The palate shows distinct
characters of coffee and chocolate, which is balanced with smooth velvety
tannins and a lingering aftertaste.
