Rhôneblend from organic Paarl grapes, fermented with minimal handling in historical Georgian clay vessels. The Qvervi vessels allow the wine to breathe as it ferments producing an elegant wine with dense purity of fruit and crisp minerality in the wine. Aged for 1 year in the Qvevri. Fine tannins, bright natural acidity, abundance of fruit and an intriguing earthiness. 52% Grenache, 30% Syrah and 18% Mourvèdre. Will develop complex secondary characteristics over time.
Perfect company to salads, seafood and pastas.
