With its beautiful red hue and expressive character, the Marianne Pinotage makes the hearts of red wine lovers beat faster, as this vintage delights with intense aromas and elegant tannins. Wonderful notes of plums and raspberries unfold in the bouquet, surrounded by dark chocolate and a hint of violets. Thanks to its sixteen to eighteen months of ageing in barriques, the Marianne Pinotage impresses on the palate with its good structure and a harmonious balance of fruity and spicy nuances. This red wine is therefore a real treat on its own, but it is also an excellent accompaniment to spicy dishes with dark meat or game.

The Wines from Marianne

Being a small boutique winery, Marianne produces only a small and strictly limited amount of bottles. If nothing else, this is why the team focuses on a high quality of all vintages. Every wine has matured for at least three years after the harvest before it is officially released.
The red wines such as the Cabernet Sauvignon, the Desirade (Merlot and Cabernet), Floreal (Cabernet, Shiraz, Merlot) or the Cape Blend (Cabernet, Pinotage, Shiraz, Merlot) enchant with a brave aromatic structure, dominant fruit notes and well integrated tannins. The Marianne Wine Estate is also famous for its noble delicacies that are perfect meal companions and feature a high ageing potential. This is true for the red wines and the white wines alike.

Marianne Winery – a French History in South Africa

In 1688, the first Huguenots fled to the South African Western Cape due to religious persecution by Louis XIV and therefore laid the foundation for prosperous wine cultivation. Numerous renowned South African wineries are at home here in the present day. In 2002, Christian Dauriac discovered the winery Marianne and was immediately impressed by the possibilities for creating premium wines for gourmets. The Dauriac family has already more than 30 years of experience in wine cultivation since they run three successful wineries in France: Château Clémence, Destieux and Château Montlisse.

Marianne Unites French Knowledge with South African Nature

The modern winery Marianne produces wines from classic red grape varieties on South African terroir. Some of the special wines of the estate are the Merlot, the Desirade as well as the Floreal. They have already been awarded with the Veritas Award; further well-known awards are, for example, the sought-after John Platter Stars and the Michelangelo Award. The Marianne Cape Blend is very popular amongst friends of South Africa wine. A powerful red wine with a bouquet of dark fruits such as currants, united with light tannins.
