t was with interest that we followed the so called Coffee Pinotage style as various brands made in this seductive style became available. While we could understand the reasons why this style was enjoyed by many consumers, including a great number of first time red wine drinkers, we had some concern regarding the inherent ability of the wine to keep on being interesting to consumers. In our view, the quintessional earthiness and sweet red berry flavours of Pinotage were possibly being overpowered by too much wood in some cases. Would it, therefore, be possible to make a seductive wine with the focus on softer mocha & ground coffee flavours, while retaining the inherent fruity attractiveness of the cultivar? We believe we got it right with Cappupinoccinotage.
Situated in the picturesque Paarl Valley, Boland Cellar has much to boast about.
Nominated as one of South Africa’s top 20 export companies in their category, being named one of the top 100 wine producers in the world by the World Association of Wine & Spirits Writers as well as being arguably the top wine producer from the much acclaimed Paarl region, gives us much to be grateful for.
The late Peter Sichel once offered a definition of what makes a great wine. He stated that the character of a wine is defined by the terroir, the quality by the people and the personality by the weather.” Our definition is much simpler; if you think you had a glass but the bottle seems to be finished, then it must be a great wine.
