Description

CELLAR INFORMATION Picked in small crates and left overnight in cold room to bring temperature down to roughly 10 degrees Celsius. The challenge is to interpret the current vintage conditions in order to balance whole bunch, destemming of grapes and adding stalks (tannins). A combination of whole bunch, destemmed grapes and stalks go into a stainless steel tank and left until natural fermentation starts. VINEYARD INFORMATION Crops were one of the smallest ever due to the ongoing drought. Severe weather fluctuations during bud break and flowering, contributed to an already challenging season. The positive was, despite a small crop, an increase in quality of the fruit. (Winter of 2019 received high rainfall however vineyards and soils will still take some time to recover from the severe drought.)

Greg Sherwood 95

From a spectacular block in Agter-Paardeberg, this Grenache has a mind and a life of its own. With minimal intervention throughout, this petulant child has been rapidly evolving with it s own ideas of where it s going. It seems to grow in complexity and interest all the time, and is now showing a floral nose, wild strawberry, fragrant spice and an earthy, meaty intensity. [01/01/2023]

Producer Profile

Ian Naudé’s wines are unlike anything else.

His range of wines are made up of esoteric pockets of old and new vines that tell a story about South African heritage. He did so fearlessly, believing that South African wine, if made honestly, and without compromise can come to rival the finest wines in the world. And slowly the international wine cognoscenti have started believing it too, as demonstrated by their rave reviews year-on-year.
