2019 Air Carrots of Pagnol / Wellington, Voor-Paardeberg  

A blend of Grenache Blanc with a dash of Grenache Gris. This is a fuller bodied style with pure, concentrated fruit and loads of texture. It’s fermented in older neutral barrels and sees a brief period of skin contact, adding texture to the palate.

2020 Nothing to Declare / Western Cape

A blend of Marsanne, Rousanne, Palomino, Fernao Pires and Verdelho, all from Swartland. Surprising wine with a lot of complexity. Bright starw yellow colour with large tears. Mineral aroma with pit fruit and dry spices as thyme and rosemary. Full-bodied with exceptional harmonious balance. Very ripe fruit with pronounced acidity and fine bitterness in a long finish.

2020 Orbitofrontal Cortex / Western Cape

Verdelho from 2 different vineyards, Palomino, Weisser Riesling, Semillon, Sauvignon blanc, Marsanne, Roussanne, Chenin blanc from 3 different vineyards, Chardonnay and Viognier The idea behind this wine was (and still is) to select the white components in the winery we like most and to assemble a blend that represents that particular vintage in an honest and pure way. This is OUR favourite wine, not necessarily the best. The one that we as a team like the most. It is not bound to an area or varietal - it is an assembly of interesting things that differs from year to year according to whatever performed well that specific season. – Winemaker’s Note

2020 Empire Strikes Back / Stellenbosch

The name refers to winemaker Pieter Walser’s feeling about Stellenbosch as the best winemaking region in SA, in response to the Swartland Revolution (great wines coming from a number of young winemakers out of this region). This is a profound, complex white that is fermented in a mix of concrete and clay amphora. Verdelho, Marsanne, Viognier, Chardonnay, Rousanne, and Chenin Blanc from Stellenbosch.

2020 Retirement at 65 / Darling
The 5th vintage of Retirement@65, the 2020 A little higher in alcohol than the 12% 2019 but to me the best vintage so far. Driven by perfume rather than fruit, fresh and drinkable. Far removed from the style the new world is typically known for. With the block of Cinsault now 69 years of age it ironically comes to life at the age of Retirement… Added to the Cinsault is a little dash of Shiraz from the same area. And the label: A linocut I made to celebrate the fact that we won and the sheep lost. – Winemaker’s Note

2020 Pseudonym / Darling

Pseudonym is made from a small 68-year old little vineyard. It grows in a little valley into the mountain in Darling. Seeing that it is the only food source around, the birds eat the grapes every year. The farmer could never use the valley for something else, so he kept the vineyard. When the grapes eventually ripened, there wouldn’t be much left to harvest. He would then pick the bits and throw it with the other grapes from the farm headed for the big co-operative winery. This was what had happened for 64 years. I asked him if we could cover the whole vineyard with bird nets, I bought the nets and he gave the labour. It was at the age of 65 when, for the first time, a wine was made exclusively from that little vineyard. I make two wines from it. Retirement@65 – a blend of the little block of Cinsaut and 25% Shiraz as well as Pseudonym which is 100% the Old vineyard Cinsault. – Winemaker’s Note
