Light and bright red colour. Aromas of red cherry, cranberries and hints of fynbos, synonymous with this vineyard. A graceful, light to medium bodied palate with crunchy red fruit, herbs and pepper followed by fresh linear tannins on the finish. Consciously made lighter and fresher in style than previous vintages, will age well for 5 – 8 years.
Amid some of the most rugged and steep vineyards in Paarl, Stok by Paaltjie (Vine by Post) Grenache vines grow amongst the wild Cape fynbos. Here, each vine is given room to develop their own tiny personality as they twirl and twist their way up along an individual supportive pole, their roots reaching deep into the shale soils – soils that have been chiselled, shaped and terraced over the course of nearly two millennia. We are proud to bring forward a remarkable expression of this rising Mediterranean variety, brimming with great character and infused with intense fynbos aromas and a seamless savoury palate.
