Additional Information

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.

Chocoholic Pinotage is Darling Cellars Reserve is a wine range of straight varietals where the focus is on fruit driven, varietal true, value for money wines.

The Darling area historically is a dairy area and only the last 10 – 15 years, grape growing has come to the fore. Renowned for its wild flowers, it is one of the Western Cape’s most diverse areas.
