The world’s first White Pinotage! Our first vintage of this wine was in 2007.
“The paradox of this wine is that the eye belies the other senses! Making white wine from red grapes using South Africa’s unique Pinotage grape. Whole bunch pressing prevented the juice from obtaining colour from the skins. Barrel fermented and matured for eleven months with lees stirring gives this wine a slightly creamy, nutty character to balance the tropical pineapple fruit and banana flavours.”
Shiraz/Mouvedre/Grenache A well-balanced and complex blend. Named after winemaker's father, Toeloe Basson. A strong, full bodied character leading the way. Aged for 14 months in French oak.
White Blend Sauvignon Blanc/Chardonnay (unwooded) made by the Hamilton Russell family. Bottle age adds complexity and harmony. Chardonnay is fermented in clay amphoras. Food friendly, textured, mineral vitality and savoury length.
5 way Bordeaux Blend with a splash of Shiraz. This dry full-bodied red wine is a fusion of black currant and spice with a hint of chocolate with sweet tobacco and fynbos on the nose.
