Fernao Pires was planted in South Africa decades ago for production as brandy. Of the last blocks of Fernao left in the Cape this is the oldest at 30-something years old. Originally grown for yield and brandy this Portuguese immigrant certainly found its feet but fell out of favour. Which is where Strange Kompanjie Unlimited come in. "Before we lose ‘em let’s use ‘em." is their philopsophy. All the rock-stars are sniffing around this block now which is good for its future but here is an accessibly-priced expression of the loveliness of the Found before it gets Lost. In Portugal the variety is also known as Maria Gomes, which is strangely sexy in itself. Best drunk in its youth this wine is not for later, it’s definitely Fernao.
A mineral nose of crushed granite, peach kernel and petrichor. On the palate the sandy seam underpins ripe, juicy stonefruit flesh. The wine finishes tight and bright with a clean, lightly floral finish.
Aperitivo "DOLCE VITA" is a brilliant mix of herbs, roots, sweet spices and Vermuth. A secret recipe with Rubharb and bitter orange notes. A complex herbal fragrance to create a fresh aperitif, easy to mix and perfect for moments with friends. A unique infusion with 100% all natural flavours.
Delicate notes of orange peels, pleasantly bitter, a slightly fresh spicy hint and a unique oriental touch given by the rubharb and the saffron on the palate. Long lasting finish.
A generous vintage dominated by stone fruit, apple and melon with citrus and delicate apple blossom. Savoury minerality hovers in the background and supports the wine nicely, with long lasting acidity offering a bright finish and a food friendly profile.
