A combination of Paarl and Swartland fruit, naturally fermented without crushing, gives a supple and tasty Shiraz in a fresh, approachable style.

Ripe and fragrant with youthful cherry and redcurrant fruit and a hint of white pepper. Medium bodied and rounded with warm, red fruit flavours balanced by fresh acidity and gentle tannins and a touch of spice.

The grapes come from vineyards in Paarl and the foothills of the Swartland mountains. These vineyards produce low yields and small concentrated berries. Everything is hand-picked and naturally fermented in stainless steel tanks. 25% whole bunch fermented as the ripe stems add to the overall tannin quality of the wine, the rest is just destemmed and not crushed.

A small proportion was aged in old 300 litre barrels to soften the palate and add some texture.

JD Roussouw, Boutinot South Africa

JD was destined to be a winemaker. Whilst pregnant, his mother helped in the family winery, enriching JDs formative senses. His earliest memories are of the “floral aromas in the winery while the fermentations were happening”. JD always wanted to be a winemaker and it all came so naturally whilst helping his father in their Paarl winery.
