Vinification Details

  • The organic grapes are harvested and sorted manually. After the selection process is completed, the berries are gently destalked and then proceed to the fermentation tanks. The berries and juice are cooled down to 5◦C for a cold maceration and after three days yeasts are added and fermentation commences at controlled temperatures. The wine is cold stabilised and filtered prior to bottling with the utmost of care.

History

  • The vines were planted between 2000 and 2004. Choice of cultivar clone and rootstock were well selected in the rich soils that the Western Cape offers. Vines are pruned to deliver well balanced crop and vineyard practices gets managed accordingly. The need for irrigation gets monitored on a weekly basis to ensure the vines never stress during ripening phase

Absolutely gorgeous

Excellent quality and taste

Smooth. Great wine. A pity there's no way of askin

Smooth. Great wine. A pity there's no way of asking for a 'back in stock' request.

Avoid like the plague!

1 stars

This would have had zero stars if I could have selected that. If being organic and having no added sulphur, produces wine like this, give me pesticides and sulphur any time! There is little structure to this red wine and only a hint of the (suggested) ripe red berries on the nose before the shock of a thin, acidic taste with harsh tannins on the palate. There have been few instances of me throwing wine away but, after persevering through two glasses the rest went, where it surely belongs, down the sink. The silver lining - my drains may be a little cleaner!

Don't bother

2 stars

Don't bother. It smells and tastes very cheap and acidic. I have to be careful with wine so I opted for this organic wine with 'no added sulphites' but I reacted like usual with a bright red face and neck and thumping erratic heart beat. This only happens when the wine is no good. (This is after only one glass btw). Don't waste your money.

Brilliant

5 stars

Absolutely love this.

Disappointed

2 stars

Disappointed after reading the reviews. Both my husband and I found this a very heavy wine and left us with a headache in the morning only after 2 glasses!

light red wine

4 stars

Firstly great that this wine is vegan with no sulfates. Taste wise not as full as some red wines, went down smoothly and the next day it was like I hadn't drank a drop, no bad effects at all, no heavy head, headache or tiredness so all good. I bought when on offer which of course is better and I think I will buy this wine whenever it is on offer as a nice addition to the wine rack

Beautiful

5 stars

This is beautiful wine. Sulphite free and organic. It is a 'thick' opaque wine. There is sediment. It tastes like a real old fashioned wine before mass production of wines with no bod or sediment.

Really nice wine
