Minimalist wine making practises by Marelise Nieman include 20% whole bunch spontaneous fermentation and no enzyme or acid additions ensuring a wine of fine character and delicious palate weight. Raised in 225l French oak barrels for 20 months.
From 100% Grenache Noir, darker plum and ripe fruit aromas co-mingle with meat spice celebrating the Grenache generosity. Some fynbos notes and red berry fruit evolve from the glass as the wine opens up leading to a charming palate with some typical Grenache richness. Juicy, full flavoured but well balanced this medium to full bodied red is satisfying and a joy with fuller meat braises, lamb potjie, rustic southern French fare or simply with good old SA Braaivleis
