About this Wine
This is perfectly composed with a generous and ambrosial palate full of lemongrass and grapefruit plus hints of honey and white peach. An absolute delight, and massively over delivering for its price point!
Carl produces his Great SA Wine Co red from specially selected high-lying Stellenbosch vineyards which provide concentrated, sun-ripened fruit character and a complexity of flavour - think graphite, brambles and violets - along with a brightness and freshness, which, though partly to do with the altitude, is more to do with Carl's favouring of whole-berry fermentations and low-intervention winemaking - wild yeast ferments, minimal sulphur and no filtering. These might well be classed as natural wines, but natural wines of a special sort - not wild and funky but vivid, expressive and expertly done.
