Coffee and mocha with cherries, abundant red berries, mulberry, blackberry and an explosion of fruit on the palate make up this fun filled wine. Silky smooth. Medium-bodied and produced in a youthful style.

Our single varietal Malbec was inspired by the beautiful, fruit driven wine also blended into Bordeaux blends. Our 2 hectare block of Malbec is situated high up along the Simonsberg on Vrede en Lust and was planted in 1997. Due to the demand of Mocholate, we planted 3 hectares of Malbec in 2011.
This wine brings a whole new twist to how Malbec has been perceived in the past. The wine is rich, ruby red in colour and fruity – with beautiful aromas of mocha and chocolate – thus the Mocholate Malbec title!
Picked at 24.5 ° Balling, the grapes undergo a day of cold soaking pre-fermentation. Fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks. The grapes are pressed before fermentation finishes and malolactic fermentation takes place on oak until bottling.
