A new angel has taken flight at Grande Provence Heritage Wine Estate with the launch of their Angels Tears Le Chocolat Pinotage.
This easy drinking red wine is blessed with a heavenly twist of chocolate and generous splashes of ripe plums and red berry fruits.
The newest addition to the Angels Tears range, Angels Tears Le Chocolat Pinotage 2017 is a smooth, medium bodied wine that allures with its appealingly ripe fruitiness enhanced by hints of chocolate.
The wine owes its seductive flavour profile to the careful use of well toasted French oak during and after fermentation. The oak imparts rich toasty notes which lend wonderful chocolate and coffee flavours to the wine when combined with ripe plummy and red berry fruits typical of the Pinotage grape.
“Off course no chocolate or coffee is allowed in winemaking,” quips winemaker Hagen Viljoen, explaining that the use of toasted French oak is a skilful and natural way to bring out these delightfully appealing flavours for wine and chocolate lovers everywhere.
“The universally appealing aspect of FLAVOUR is the reason for the success in this profile of Pinotage making wine more accessible and pleasing to a broader consumer base,” adds Sales and Marketing Manager, Ivan Oertle.
Easy on the palate and great value for money, you’ll want to spread your wings and savour the angelic nature of this interesting new red. All Angels Tears wines are quality quaffers – ideal for everyday enjoyment, suitable of any occasion.
Be sure to seek out the new Le Chocolat angel in the wings when next you visit Grande Provence in Franschhoek and experience their tempting ‘Taste of Heaven’ Angels Tears pairing with handmade nougat.
The Angels Tears wines are available country-wide and sell from the Grande Provence cellar door at R55 per bottle. For added convenience, these wines can be purchased online from www.grandeprovence.co.za. Purchases of 24 bottles or more qualify for free delivery anywhere in South Africa.
