If you are a chocolate or coffee lover, you will adore this wine!

The wine has been aged in carefully selected new French and American oak barrels for 6 months, to draw out the natural coffee and chocolate flavours. The result is a wine oozing with aromas of mocha, complimenting the blackcurrant, berry and plum flavours from the Cabernet Sauvignon grapes. The rich, roasted flavours perfectly complement a dark bitter chocolate, creating a match made in chocolate heaven.

IWSC Bronze medal winner and Decanter Commended

Reviewed by Tom Cannavan 3rd March 2013
"The Cafe Caberenet is part of a new genre of 'coffee wines' that has appeared over the past few years, not actually containing coffee, but aged in oak specifically chosen for its coffee-ish aroma and flavour. This benefits from not being as overdone as some, the bitter espresso and cocoa note matched by distinct blackcurrant. On the palate the espresso is there, but the 13.5% alcohol helps give some life and refinement too."

Producer Information

Rising from the heart of the picturesque Wellington Valley is a mountain known as Groenberg, or Green Mountain. Nestling in its verdant foothills, with sweeping views across the Boland to distant Table Mountain, is the historic Slangerivier Farm - a wine estate that embraces the diversity of nature that is Wellington. Linton Park Wines captures the history, personality and style that can only be truly South African. The homestead and farm, which dates back to 1699, stands as a monument to the farm's proud viticultural heritage. The magnificent farm of over 290 hectares, with various cultivars such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz, Merlot, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc. One of the highest vineyards in South Africa, situated on the lush slopes of the Groenberg, where higher rainfall, more moderate summer and winter temperatures, and rich Oakleaf soils combine to create a distinctively favourable micro-climate, and unique terroir.
