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.
This wine is a clean bright red colour. Intense fynbos notes, red fruits and sour cherries on the nose. Delicate palate with savoury aromas, wild straw berries and seamless tannins on the finish. We love using Grenache in blends and are excited to release this as a single varietal bottling.
