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.

Favourite wine to make?
I think for me its working with Chenin Blanc that excites me the most. I love the diversity of the grape. From MCC [Methode Cap Classique] to sweet wine.

Most memorable bottle?
I did a tasting at E Guigal just after [Robert] Parker visited and was lucky enough to taste the La Landonne, La Turque and La Mouline. Wines I thought I would only ever read about.

Best food & wine pairing?
Currently I'm on the light reds bandwagon. I love italian food and it works very well with Cinsault.
