DARK, BITTER-SWEET CHOCOLATE
Tokara Director's Reserve Red 2013
The nose is shy at first, then opens up to a melange of red and black fruits with hints of dried herbs, Eucalyptus, cedar wood and graphite. The flavours are dark cherries, raspberries and blackcurrant. Price: R400DARK CHOCOLATE
Steenberg Merlot 2015
Crafted from vines on the cool Steenberg foothills, the fresh and vibrant 2015 vintage is richly rewarding with a mouthful of plum, dark chocolate and black olives. Price: R175MILK CHOCOLATE
Creation Viognier 2017
Abundantly fruity and forthcoming yet refined on the nose with fragrant white peach aromas mingling with a rich, creamy character. These follow well onto the palate and combine seamlessly with crisp minerality and natural acidity. Price: R130
