"Just a delicious and profound drink that will age for a decade." – Roland Peens, Wine Cellar
This 100% Grenache Noir was fermented in an open-topped fermenter and aged in old 225-litre oak vats for 20 months. It greets with a mix of ripe dark plum and red berry, savoury and fynbos notes and leads onto a rich, and lingeringly juicy palate. It falls midway between medium and full in body and matches well with rustic dishes like braised, braaied and roasted meats, lamb potjie and southern French fare. Winemaker Marelise prefers to intervene as little as possible. Twenty percent of the final wine was whole bunch spontaneously fermented. She added no enzymes or acid to ensure balance, depth and finesse.
