Legend has it he was conceived on a hillside vineyard at dawn on the first day of bud break.
Touched by the Goddess Demeter. Born on the damp floor of a cool cellar under a full moon on a sweltering autumn equinox at perfect phenolic ripeness.
Raised on nothing but bread, wine and hopeful aspirations. A vinous revolutionaire employing his mythical knowledge of the finest terroir to smokkel the most sought after parcels from the Cape of Good Hope.
The answer to prohibition and the age-old adage “n Boer maak n plan”
Upfront aromas of ripe tropical fruit including spanspek and pineapple, with a little white pear and fig. A touch of yeast and that unmistakable aroma of those little pink strawberry milkshake flavoured sweets you used to get at the keffie. The palate is soft and smooth with a slightly buttery texture and a pleasant finish of lemon rind. Best served ice cold!
Look for aromas of blackcurrant with a slight herbal fynbos edge, spicy white pepper and a bit of rose perfume. A savoury undertone of leather with woody overtones of coffee, mocha and cigar smoke. The pallet is smooth and rich with velvety tannin leading to a pleasant finish of black fruit, smoke and toast.
