Barista Black….

Inspired by James Bond, a wine worthy of 007

Have you seen the new James Bond movie yet? No Time To Die is the latest James Bond movie, starring Daniel Craig for his fifth, and final, time as the suave British MI6 agent.

And, if the Authorised Biography of James Bond is to be believed, the world’s most celebrated secret agent is 100 years old. His creator may have passed on, and many of the actors who have portrayed him have died, but the idea of the man stands taller than ever.

And James has not been idle this past century. His ethos has seeped into every sphere of our luxury ideals – from the cars we aspire to drive, to the way we order our drinks (honestly, who doesn’t say ‘shaken, not stirred’ when ordering a cocktail?).

And so it was, as Pinotage approaches a centenary of its own, that the Barista team noted the similarities to their own journey with the cultivar. It felt only appropriate, they thought, that they conceive a wine and bottling regal enough to match the richness of the Pinotage legacy, while also shining a light on its potential to be the African cultivar of the next century. And Barista Black is just that … an expression of the grape which, like 007 himself, expresses luxury in the most timeless of fashions.

This oppulent wine provides a well-deserved moment to slow down, and savour one’s hard-earned successes amidst the otherwise fast pace of our urban lifestyle. With plums, red currants and baking spice intermingling beautifully on the nose, the wine has a juicy fruit core with velvety tannins and oak complexity. The finish is long, smooth and pleasantly dry. Just like James!

You’ll find it in fine wine stores for around R150, or order online from baristawine.co.za
