Pure, clean dark red berry flavours flow onto a smooth, structured palate.

4. Manley Ubuntu Pinotage 2021

6. Boplaas Cape Vintage Chocolate Port 2020

Boplaas Family Vineyards' Cape Vintage Chocolate Port exhibits a deft balance between intense fruit flavours, supple tannins and exuberant spice that make it such a versatile and enjoyable style of Cape fortified wine. The bouquet abounds with ripe black plum, peach, kirsch, bramble, piquant spice, and hints of fynbos.
