Description

Ernestus Back, a wondering nomad of sorts, arrived the same night that a comet coloured the eastern sky after sunset. Greeted by Commander Zacharias Wagenaar, he was welcomed into the local community, entrusted to teach children and lend a hand in winemaking. As a rather jovial fellow, he would occasionally get too ‘hand’s on’ with the winemaking and ran amok causing much scandal – particularly on the ‘Lord’s Day’. Unimpressed, Commander Wagenaar made wine consumption illegal on Sundays, and promptly bundled Ernestus off to Batavia, his disappearance fading from the scene as swiftly as the comet.

This Bloemcool wine is made to honour the spirit of Ernestus Back – a man filled with much spirit.
