A solid 15% alcohol Piekenierskloof Grenache noir Rose, please do not judge the wine by it’s alcohol… It is on the high side but the wine is in 100% balance. Fresh as a daisy.

The Story

The Bomb range (if one could call it that), started with my German importer, Martin Baulmann – a larger-than-life personality who loves equally larger-than-life framed wines. First up was The BOMB (red), then The WHITE BOMB and now, yes you guessed it, The PINK BOMB. To produce wines with this structure, you need vineyards where the grapes have the opportunity of extended “hang-time” (the amount of days the bunches spend attached to the vine) – a spot where they have intensity of sunlight combined with a lower average day temperature and cool nights. This unique combination enables the fruit to ripen at a slower pace, thus retaining their freshness and acid. The higher above sea-level you go, the closer you get. So this is The PINK BOMB 2021 – a straight Grenache noir from a bush-vine vineyard at 687m above sea-level in the Piekenierskloof. A fresh, vibrant wine with punch! Like I said, not what you would’ve expected.
