Barrels of free flowing wine, chocolate fountains and strawberries will entertain Pinotage partisans in Gauteng when Diemersfontein brings the uber-popular Pinotage on Tap to The Cradle of Humankind, Cradle Restaurant, Lanseria on 2nd October.
Scheduled to coincide with the tenth birthday of Diemersfontein’s award-winning wines, Pinotage on Tap Gauteng promises the same excitement as its Cape Town counterpart.
The Original Coffee Pinotage will be served on tap with canapés, strawberries dipped in chocolate and delectable foods to pair. Festival goers can look forward to an exciting line up of artists such as Lonehill Estate, whose eclectic mix of tunes has been played alongside the likes of Muse and 30 Seconds to Mars.
As is its convention, Pinotage on Tap will launch the new vintage of the Coffee Pinotage. Deemed the ‘People’s Pinotage’ the wine has won awards in the ABSA Top Ten Pinotage Competition, the Michaelangelo Wine Awards, four stars in Platter’s guide to wine, and best wine on show as voted by the public at several of South Africa’s WineX events.
Made for early enjoyment, the Coffee Pinotage is bottled mid-year after oak maturation for five months. Aside from natural variation according to vintages, the wine retains its essential features – easy accessibility and rich coffee-chocolate overtones.
