At the Western Cape’s Pinnacle Point, evidence remains in maritime caves of our earliest known ancestors - a primitive culture that combed the beaches and fished in the same rock-pools from whence they came.

The aim with Primordial Soup is to introduce South African wine in its most accessible form, red wine made up of multiple classical cultivars, named without variety.

The design inspiration is from the illustration’s of Ernst Haeckel, German naturalist, who identified then drew some of the simplest forms of life on Earth. These relate to Darwinism and the subject of Creation and evolution as a whole. It’s the story of everything.

This is a rich and bloody bouillabaisse of the Western Cape’s classical cultivars, packed with juicy life, red in tooth and claw.

It has a nose of creamy summer pudding and a palate of crushed cherries with a cranberry tang and texture. It’s the Natural Selection.

More Information


South Africa

South African wine has a history dating back to 1659 with the first bottle being produced in Cape Town by its founder and gouverner Jan van Riebeeck. South Africa is located at the tip of Africa with its wine regions located near the coastal influences of the Atlantic and Indian Oceans. These regions have a mostly Mediterranean climate that is marked by intense sunlight and dry heat.

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.

    First class wine as you would expect from South Africa, one of my favourite wines.
