Totally coffee-espresso on the nose and palate of this pinotage, and unapologetically (and delightfully) so. Weirdly wonderful: end your day with the alcoholic version of your morning coffee. Full-bodied and smooth red wine with some black fruit flavours as well. The coffee-style pinotage has become popular among South African winemakers. The grape Pinotage, the most iconic red wine for South Africa, was originally created by crossing Pinot Noir and Cinsault grapes. Produced by Mooiplaas Wines, this red wine is robust, rugged and full of character. The espresso notes are derived from both the toasting and type of French oak barrels in which the wine is aged. Try it with gourmet hamburgers or meat lovers' pizza.
Pinotage food pairings: roast leg of lamb, grilled chicken, venison steak.
Luscious Lamb Wine

|Andrea Shapiro rated this wine as 85/100 with the following review:|
Coffee and wine? Together at last!
Medium ruby colour with pronounced aromas of the dark cherry, dark chocolate, smoky tar, cappuccino, espresso, plum, cedar, leather and anise. Incredibly smoky and elements of barnyard and closet doors present for that Undescribable touch of funk. Medium plus flavours of tart cherry, blackberry, raspberry, tomato stem and grapefruit pith. Medium plus acidity and medium body and tannin with a long dry finish. Youthful and not very complex. Drink now. 85 points
|From the Mooiplaas Estate, The Coffee Bean (2016) is exactly that, a rich coffee-espresso Pinotage, robust and ever so smooth. The grape Pinotage, the most iconic red wine for South Africa, was originally created by crossing Pinot Noir and Cinsault grapes. - Community Wine Reviews|
