Chocoholic is composed of two distinctly differing components. 10% of the juice was created by twisting the grape stalks to induce raisening of the fruit while still on the vine. The juice from these grapes is then added to pinotage juice which received oak contact to produce a seductively smooth, sensually soft, subtly sweet, mouth fillingly moreish, unashamedly addictive, decadently Pinotage
