Coffee-chocolate pinotage. Bliss in a bottle!


If you’re looking for an exceptional Pinotage this month of love, we’ve found a couple of great options – including the just released Diemersfontein The Prodigy, the third in this estate’s coffee-chocolate Pinotage range. Lighter than the original, The Prodigy perfectly ticks the box for everyday enjoyment – it’s brilliant with South African staples like bobotie, bunny chow and braai – which all beg for a glass of Pinotage – while its versatility makes it a great partner with roast duck, lamb casserole and even chocolate soufflé. Serve it slightly chilled. R75. The much-loved coffee and chocolate notes of the Original Diemersfontein Pinotage make it a wine worth savouring. Although a great partner to rich lamb casseroles and gentle Malay curries, the best companion for this wine is a rich, decadent chocolate dessert. Try it with a molten chocolate lava cake or chocolate pecan brownie – absolute heaven! You’ll find it online for R127. Details:

Chocoholics, listen up! If you’re a fan of coconut then you  absolutely have to grab a bag of the new coconut ice in milk chocolate Chuckles. We. Just. Can’t. Stop. Eating. Them. A perfect indulgence for date night. R36.99 from Woolies. Details:
