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 WORLD-CLASS WINES.
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.
Yield: 6 ton/ha
