South Africa Swartland
Grape variety: Cinsault
Uses 38-49 year old vines from 3 single vineyards (Masago, Shale, Granite and Clay) in the Padeberg area. Bush Vine. Harvested and sorted by hand. Cinsault pressed juice with pressed Carignan skins for another cuvée maceration periqueur for 1 month. Transferred to old French oak barrels and aged in Surrey for 11 months. Unfiltered and bottled without antioxidants.
Concept wine "Brütal".
This wine is a concept wine that various producers who do not want to use sulfites at the time of bottling give their "attacked" wines a common cuvée name and release them individually. Brutal means "brutal" and "brutal", as well as a double meaning in Catalan slang (because the originators of this concept include the producers of Spain and Roussillon), meaning "wonderful!" . As an antithesis to the existing authority of wine, the standard etiquette (label) with the design of the god of death wielding a scythe is used.
Maker Johan Meyer A beloved character nicknamed Stompy by everyone because of his petite and friendly personality. A wonderful producer who creates a fascinating and delicate wine that is unimaginable from its appearance. Diploma in oenology and agronomy from Elsenberg College. After that, he studied the basics of winemaking, especially Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, in California's Napa Valley, Central Coast, and New Zealand. He returned to South Africa in 2008 and won numerous awards as head winemaker and viticulturalist at a small winery in Thalbach. From 2010 to the present, Winemaker and own brand of wine at Mount Abora, Swartland. From now on, I would like to show the world that South Africa takes wine making seriously by expressing the South African terroir and producing top quality wines.
