Extraño – meaning stranger in Spanish – Introducing an unusual blend of Spanish varieties Tempranillo and Grenache, this red will pack a punch and wow any hearty meal. Arriba arriba, bring out those castanets!

Dark brick burgundy in the glass. Notes on the nose include dark berries, plums warm spices and vanilla pod. Palate is full bodied with broody red fruit, typical of Tempranillo it has firm tannin which will age well for up 5- 8 years. The finish is savoury and dry – a good partner to heartly meals.

Description

The Tempranillo and Grenache Noir grapes are both sourced from Fairview in Paarl. Tempranillo is well suited to the hot and dry Mediterranean conditions in Paarl. The Grenache Noir is from our “stok-by-paaltjie” vineyard higher on the slopes of Paarl Mountain in a pocket of shist on the otherwise granite soils. Some other Mediterranean cultivars may feature in other vintages

The grapes were handpicked and sorted into open top French oak foudres for fermentation. The Grenache Noir grapes included 20% whole bunches at the bottom. Punch-downs took place daily and the wine was basket pressed after alcohol fermentation. The components were further matured in French and American oak barrels, of which 20% new barrels were used for the Tempranillo for a total of 24 months. Each component of the blend was kept separate and until final barrel selection and blending occurred.
