    Producer comment:
    The soul of Africa resides at Slent, at the foot of Perdeberg Mountain. Nature offers thrilling golden red sunsets that encompass table mountain. It also offers you unbelievable surprises… like finding a mummy baboon cuddling her baby baboon in our pinotage vineyard. It’s a unique sight. Baby baboon moves arranging himself in a comfortable and cozy position squeezing tightly in mum’s arms to receive few pinotage berrys as special sweet treat. The loss is not irreparable and the sight is priceless. A distinctive mocha, dark chocolate and toffee flavour complemented by berry aromas makes this wine truly unique. The wine is medium bodied, soft and easy to drink with an abundance of juicy fruit and velvety and smooth tannins. A real cuddle!
