In the unique world of creating distinctive wines, winemaker Bertus Fourie is a legend. He earned the nickname ‘Starbucks’ for his exceptional skill in producing the coffee-flavoured Barista Pinotage. Building on this first success, Bertus has now literally splashed out with the delicious Barista Chardonnay and its decidedly citrusy notes. Join us in exploring them both, pronto. The grapes that go into each bottle of Barista wine are picked optimally ripe during mid-February, with different batches treated in various ways. Explore our Pinotage and Chardonnay to find out more about the inspiration behind each.
Much like the crema that adorns a good espresso, Barista Chardonnay’s fresh lemon, tangerine and gooseberry flavours are coated with a subtle vanilla oak finish.
A burst of intense, rich coffee and chocolate aromas with nuances of ripe mulberry, plum and Maraschino cherries. The sweet aroma of vanilla follow through on the palate and meld with the soft, luscious tannins. A wine ready to be enjoyed.
