Always on the hunt for the exciting, we’ve cultivated a stranger (Extraño) in our vineyards, delicately taming Tempranillo’s temperamental streak by integrating fellow Spanish varieties Grenache and Carignan.

Wine Info
Description

The grapes are handled very carefully, with no excessive pump-overs and gentle pressing to ensure minimum tannin extraction. The wines are fermented separately in stainless steel tanks before being oaked in 2nd and 3rd fill French and American barrels for 24 months. The Tempranillo and some of the Grenache noir grapes are from the Fairview farm in Paarl, with the balance of the latter is from the cooler region of Darling. The Carignan is from old bushvines in the Swartland. The Grenache noir from the block at Fairview is a bush vine, with its naturally upright shoots trained through a stok-by-paaltjie technique (in order to lift the grapes).
