Diemersfontein The Prodigy Pinotage 2018 - SOLD OUT

Diemersfontein The Prodigy Pinotage 2018 - SOLD OUT

Unlike his older siblings, the original Diemersfontein’Coffee/Chocolate’ style Pinotage and the Diemersfontein Carpe Diem Reserve Pinotage, this wine exudes the unique, youthful and vibrant characteristics of this truly South African varietal. As the new kid on the block, the Prodigy emanate rich flavours of dark red fruit like mulberry and black berry on the nose followed by strawberry, cherry and plum on the palate all wrapped in a subtle hint of a well-balanced oak component.

South African staples, Bobotie, Bunny Chow and Braai, all beg for a glass of Pinotage. Its versatility makes it a great partner with roast duck, lamb casseroles and even Chocolate soufflé.
