'20% whole-bunch fermentation. Cherry, wild strawberry, earth and white pepper on the nose. The palate is rich and broad yet not without freshness – dense fruit and fine but simultaneously grippy tannins. Impactful without being gauche.' Winemag.co.za


Press Note:

Neal Martin, vinous.com The 2017 Raaigras (“rye grass”) Grenache comes from the oldest Grenache in South Africa, planted in 1952. It has a well-defined, very perfumed, almost minty bouquet of thyme and sage. The palate is medium-bodied with a slightly medicinal opening, that leitmotif of peppermint surfacing through the red fruit, and well defined with gentle grip and slightly chalky tannin on the sappy finish. Very fine. 91 points
