One of our favourite arrivals of the year, the ever-changing blend of Papegaai keeps it exciting, while the inimitable character of Adi Badenhorst consistently shines through. One sip of this wine fills us with boundless joy. It is the perfect choice for a party - or in fact any kind of group gathering - because it is such a crowd-pleaser. Normally that term is a euphemism for 'bland', but in this case it genuinely rings true - keep everyone happy, without compromise!

Tasting Notes

Full to bursting with fruit character, there is a gentle ripe plushness about the texture, counterbalanced by abundant zesty-ness! This zippiness is a key part of its charm, and the reason why it's so easy to pour another glass. The nose and palate deliver a cacophony of peach, guava, cantaloupe melon, papaya, half-dried mango and fresh pineapple. On the finish there is a rounding sensation of nutmeg and clove, plus a tiny pinch of white pepper. Drink now - until it's all gone.
