Tasting Notes

Considering the skin contact fermentation it takes a great deal of skill to produce a wine with such clarity and brightness. Beautifully pale pink in colour, the palate is initially one of fresh strawberries before a very smart, pithy finish.

Producer details

Strange Kompanjie Unlimited is a casual band of happy ferments. A circus tent of the Cape's stranger grapes and blends. They champion the unfashionable, experiment with the known and express the found before it gets lost. Strange Kompanjie is a cultivar club for the underdog.

In the vineyard

Harvested from Grenache Gris

In the winery

Skin fermented (naturally) until dry. The wine was then pressed and matured in 400 litre ceramic eggs for 7 months.

Food Recommendations

It pairs beautifully with a sunny evening in the garden but if you want food to go with it, pork with a fennel crust would be a delight.
