Strange Kompanjie Unlimited

The Underworld thrusts a shovel into the dust to discover the unseen work of roots, winding blindly, thirstily through aeons of geological time, seeking sustenance in the soil. Dry grown vines work hard underground where their roots are the hidden heroes of flavour, of place. A Coastal concoction of Carignan, Durif, Mourvedre & Grenache.

Production

All the components come from dryland vines with deep root systems. Each varietal and origin brings something unique to the blend: The Darling Grenache (37%) and Carignan (15%) dominate giving freshness, bright red fruits and juiciness; Durif (33%) from Stellenbosch adds structure, depth and spice; whilst Paarl Mourvèdre (15%) brings the whole blend together rounding it off and providing structure and complexity.

Tasting notes

Vibrant red berries including raspberry, cherry and cranberry on the nose with a peppery spice. Elegant soft tannins with a fresh acidity, balanced by juicy red fruit on the palate. PHENOMENALLY tasty.

Food match

Great with roast beef or lamb, as well as grilled meats and BBQs.
