This is the result of our first project with Pieter Walser, it is a wine unique to us with our own label. This is hopefully the first of many to come.
This is a combination of three different grape varieties. Tempranillo from Stellenbosch, Nebbiolo from Goudini, Breede River and Carignan from Tulbach, I know, a combination much used nowhere.
The wine is made as naturally as possible, adding the least amount of sulphur possible, and is aged in old oak for 18 months.
The owner of the Tempranillo vineyard, doesn't appear to need to earn from it, and on a spur of the moment decision ripped it all up. This was the first time experimented with Tempranillo in the blend from this area, and it now cannot happen again hence 'It is what it is".
This wine has lovely elegant fruit, it's a fine wine, not in your face, it has subtlety. The Shiraz fruit comes from 105 year old vines. It's aged in old oak and concrete.
This semi-dry Vermouth is hand-crafted from a carefully selected blend of 40 herbs, spices and citrus peels each adding depth, complexity and interest to this delicious drink.
Semi-dry in style, it’s ideally suited to drinking on its own paired with strong cheeses, nuts or cured meats; or as a partner in many cocktails.
