100% Barbarossa from the only officially verified vineyard of the grape variety in South Africa. It is a grape variety that was thought to have been lost in the 1950's so finding an original vineyard of it is incredibly exciting! This is an intriguing and different style of wine, dark but with bright fruit and big tannins. Highlighted by Tim Atkin as on of his standout wines from the New Wave South Africa tastings. MAX 6 BOTTLES PER CUSTOMER

Tasting Notes

Press Note:

Neal Martin: "The 2015 Brak-Kuil Barbarossa has a winsome, leather and undergrowth tinged bouquet that infuses the pure red berry fruit. It then opens to reveal more tertiary/tobacco aromas, woodbine and what you might describe as antique bureau. The palate is well balanced with dark berry fruit, bay leaf and a touch of Earl Grey on the back palate. I appreciate the weight and presence of this wine, the length as it fans out with some conviction and leaves you with a dash of black pepper tingling on the tongue on the finish. Excellent and distinctive. 91 points. Drink 2019-2032" "The first thing to notice here is the brilliant label that looks like a hommage to Crocodile Dundee. The second thing you notice is the beauty of the wine, coming off a single vineyard that for years was incorrectly thought to be Cinsault when in fact it's the rare Barbarossa instead. Juicy black fruit to the max, it's a cheerful luscious mouthful with a faintly funky edge and a good tannin framework. Due to limited stock and popularity only 6 bottles of this is allowed per order."
