Mooiplaas - The Bean 2018Fine And Silky
The idea was to create a wine with dark fruit that is finely integrated with coffee/mocha flavours.
To achieve this, the wine was fermented and aged on well roasted French oak staves.
The Bean has a deep purple colour, the nose shows dark mocha and roasted coffee bean flavours.
The wine shows a lot of tannins, but these tannins are fine and silky and well-integrated in the wine.
The palate is mouth-filling and surprisingly complex for such a young wine.
Once tasted, this is a wine not easily forgotten.
