Loskop means loose-head, so-named and appropriately labelled for the day that Pieter unfortunately forgot his pair of shoes, and spent an entire day barefoot on the day he went to pick this fruit! Tinta Barocca it may, but this is not a big wine – it’s very pretty and gentle – redcurrants and earthy notes, a hint of truffle and old fashioned liquorice, and gentle sappiness, and with time open, a really pretty top note too of violets. The acidity is very fine, very moreish!

More Info

Every one of Pieter’s wines is a story, rather than a grape variety, and it’s the juice inside the bottle which reveals that story. He doesn’t own any vines, but instead scours South Africa’s winelands for top-quality fruit that has somehow slipped under the radar, now sourcing from nearly 70 sites. Some years he’ll make 20 wines, other years 35. With the benefit of anonymity, variety and regional identity take a back seat while parcel expression does the driving. These are some of South Africa’s most original wines, made by one of South Africa’s most original winemakers.
