Description

VITICULTURE
Wild House is a lifestyle range which reflects a place of raw energy, a weather-beaten hut exposed to the storm-swept slopes…Inspired by the ever-shifting views of the landscape and weather from each aspect of the house, the producer has crafted this range of wines to reflect the land they call home.
WINEMAKING
Grapes for this wine were carefully hand-harvested and sorted. Most of the fruit comes from Paarl, but a small amount of Franschhoek fruit is added to the final blend to give it a bit of spice and ‘edge’. Naturally fermented in stainless steel tanks, 50% of this blend then undergoes malolactic fermentation in 300 and 600 litre French oak barrels (10% of which are new).
OAK TREATMENT
French Oak.
TASTING NOTE
Inviting aromas of summer pudding, ripe black cherry, vanilla and even a touch of Framboise. On the palate, more rich black fruits, smoky notes and a suggestion of dark chocolate and star anise. Youthful acidity and ripe balanced tannins give a fresh finish with depth and complexity.
FOOD MATCHING
Braai (South African BBQ) is the most obvious choice but this is a really versatile wine that works well with most meats, mushrooms dishes or just on its own.
