A vibrant, aromatic red, crafted using Beaujolais techniques. This lighter, elegant wine is bursting with cherry and bubble gum aromas on the nose but don’t let the light color fool you. On the palate you’ll still pleasantly find a full yet soft body with silky smooth tannin and plenty of structure. It has been described by many as the perfect summer red.

Wines for the Wild
Harvested by hand early morning on March 7th, 2021. The grapes were cut from the old bush vines in Paarl before sunrise and driven back to the winery in Cape Agulhas. After being sorted by hand twice, healthy clusters were gently loaded into open top barrels and sparged with c02. The tops were then sealed and they were left for Carbonic Maceration to take place. After 14 days, the barrels were opened up and the whole bunches were loaded into an old wooden basket press and gently pressed 200kg at a time. The juice was pumped into old 300L French oak barrels where wild fermentation then took place. After 8 days from being in barrel, the wine was dry. Malolactic fermentation began naturally and completed in 18 days. The wine was racked off all lees, barrels cleaned thoroughly, then put back into barrel for maturation of 9 months in barrel.
