For many years I worked with Bordeaux style varietals, until Rosa Kruger found this amazing vineyard of Grenache from Agter-Paardeberg.
After only one vintage (2014) with this block, I lost it until 2019.
I was excited to put my hands on this Grenache again and just like the 2014 - vintage, my main intention was to move away from those typical heavy/fruit/barnyard style Grenache.
Many visits to the vineyard and picking at the ripeness that would make a lighter Grenache - style of wine, and fermenting it with minimal interference, this wine took a life of its own.
