Immediate nose of beetroot juice poured over graphite shavings sets you up for quite a journey. The palate shares the same dense minerality and graphite texture as the nose with a quiet but growing presence of forest floor and frozen berries. On opening, this fruit thaws to release fresh summer pudding and cream served in a pencil case. Bonkers!
Okuzgozo derives its name from the large berries said to resemble a bull’s eye. This is generously flavoured with hints of cherries and redcurrants, very soft tannins and a lively acidity on the finish.
