About this Wine

100% Verdelho from the Voor Paardeberg. It's rich, it's ripe, it's opulent, and it goes exceptionally well with Thai food. If you like your whites bold and big, this is for you - slightly later picked, but very fresh and high acidity.

Tasting notes

'The Verdelho grapes in this wine are from one vineyard in the Voor Paardeberg, and is named for one of the current farmer's grandfather - a chap who owned the first ever Suzuki Jimny in the whole of South Africa! Yup, one of those little mini 4x4s that we know over here as a Jimmy. During the mining boom in Namibia, a couple of smarter, tough but small cards were required to get the bigwigs from mine to mine, and a couple of them made their way in to South Africa. Years on, the grandson of the famous Jimny and farm owner has continued the tradition and still keeps many. Not only that, but he's also the reigning champion of the off road dune racing competition on the west coast!' Pieter Walser, Winemaker 

FROM THE PRESS

“Picked twice for different ripeness levels, this pure Verdelho comes from Willie Mostert's farm in the Voor Paardeberg. Spicy, leesy and complex, it has aniseed, pear and apricot skin notes underpinned by vivid acidity and old wood.”
Tim Atkin MW, South African Special report 2019
