Momento, Grenache 2015

Marelise Niemann, formerly assistant winemaker at Beaumont Family Wines, is a star to watch in Bot River. Here, her minimal intervention approach has produced a vital, pure and honest wine from old dry-farmed Paardeberg bush vines. A third is whole-bunch fruit, and it is all aged for 15 months in old 225 litre barrels. Fresh acidity with tart cherry and cranberry fruit, lifted violet notes and fine, chalky tannins make this a vibrant, elegant and moreish red. 92% Grenache, 8% Carignan.
