Café Culture, KWV’s popular coffee-style pinotage, now has a sparkling sibling.
Named Choc Mousse, the newcomer is the first coffee pinotage bubbly in South Africa, according to Café Culture brand director Jeff Gradwell, and "it provides a new way of enjoying a sparkling wine" and "a choice for people who enjoy expressing their individual taste, rather than conforming to society's prerequisites."
Café Culture debuted with the 2007 vintage, and the wine's overt coffee and chocolate flavours have fuelled many debates but also attracted a strong following. Choc Mousse, which has a similar flavour profile, "will become a firm favourite with Café Culture enthusiasts as well as attract new wine drinkers looking for an exciting offering to the Café Culture stable," Gradwell believes.
Presented in a bold red bottle with the Café Culture logo in its signature yellow, the packaging is out of the ordinary and will kick start any conversation at the dinner table or get-togethers," concludes Gradwell. "But the true test remains in the taste and the only way to find out if this lively, sociable and flavourful sparkling wine is for you, is to simply try it." He recommends that the wine be well chilled and enjoyed on its own or with strawberries and dark chocolate.
Café Culture Choc Mousse will be available at all leading liquor outlets nationwide. The recommended retail price is ZAR59.99.
