A very expressive nose showing exotic fruits (mango, passion fruit, lychee).On the palate fresh and fruity with a hint of minerality.
The long wild yeast ferment provides bready aromas and additional complexity to the wine. Dried herbaceous notes, including fennel and aniseed from the nearby Fynbos, dominate the nose, followed by a creamy lemon character. The palate is reminiscent of the nose, with great textural complexity (attributable to the long, slow wild yeast fermentation), and more herbal characters.

The grapes for False Bay Whole Bunch Cinsault Mourvedre stem from bush-vine Cinsault (mostly old vines) in Stellenbosch and The Swartland, along with a small proportion of Mourvedre from Stellenbosch which adds a savoury depth to the wine. Although The Swartland is not as coastal as most of the vineyards used for the False Bay wines, it is an area where, quite frankly, grapes from old vines are available at the required prices. Thankfully, the area's old vines produce naturally low yields and retain good acidity despite being warmer and less windswept than Stellenbosch, so cooler, coastal Atlantic winds are less of a necessity for these gnarly old vines. Made by Waterkloof's talented young Cellarmaster Nadia Barnard. Balanced grapes are hand harvested, whole-bunch pressed and fermented spontaneously with wild yeast in stainless steel and wooden foudre. The wine is left on lees for a minimum of three months before bottling. No additions other than sulphur as a preservative. Grown, made and bottled in South Africa.

A brilliant, gleaming white gold wine. We get the measure of the 2019 vintage in the glorious generosity of the nose with its delicate notes of white flowers and sweet almond.

Incisive and well-balanced, the palate opens with the immense freshness characteristic of our wines on notes of white fruit, mint and liquorice. Due to its continental situation, the Domaine’s terroir gives rise to surprising wine profiles… wines of great elegance that promise great cellaring potential.

The vineyards are certified as HVE3, meaning they acheive the highest standards of sustainable agriculture.
Grown on high ground in vineyards that are planted on clay and limestone soils. The vines are night harvested in order to preserve aromas and freshness.

Palazzina vineyard is on the Il Cascinone estate. Vine yield is 3000 litres per hectare. The fruit is hand harvested in the second half of October (about one month later than the usual Moscato harvest). The grapes are dried on ‘graticci’ - a traditional Italian rush mat. During this time 40% of the fruit's weight is lost by water evaporation. In mid-December the whole bunches are pressed and then a slow fermentation is undertaken in oak barrels for 2 months followed by 12 months ageing prior to bottling.

A dry crisp unoaked wine with a fresh bouquet and a refreshing citrus flavour.
On the fecund plateau of Piekenierskloof there exists some extraordinary bush. Dwarfish, seemingly petrified stumps punctuate a high rolling landscape of ryegrass and rooibos. Amongst these are old plantings of Grenache Noir, Chenin Blanc and, here and there, Palomino. Strange Kompanjie has isolated one such block for a teeny release of old vine Palomino, planted in 1977. Fresh and zesty aromas with notes of almond skin, fennel and even a little jasmine. A bright natural acidity on the palate with a teasing top note of grassy fennel, almond nuttiness and the residual salinity of an old dry grown vineyard. Drink slowly to take all this in.
