Strange Kompanjie Old Vine Palomino

Bottle notes

The label reflects the wine's provenance high up on the Piekenierskloof plateau, were stumpy bush-vines appear frozen in poses of agony. Their meagre yield gives a wine that's bright, tangy, textural, and distinctly salty on the finish.Strange Kompanjie Old Vine Palomino,

PRODUCTION

On the fecund plateau of Piekenierskloof there exists some extraordinary bush. Dwarfish, seemingly petrified stumps punctuate a high rolling landscape of ryegrass and rooibos. Amongst these are old plantings of Grenache Noir, Chenin Blanc and, here and there, Palomino. Strange Kompanjie has

isolated one such block for a teeny release of old vine Palomino, planted in 1977.

TASTING NOTE

Fresh and zesty aromas with notes of almond skin, fennel and even a little jasmine. A bright natural

acidity on the palate with a teasing top note of grassy fennel, almond nuttiness, and the residual salinity

of an old dry grown vineyard. Drink slowly to take all this in.

FOOD MATCH

Simply cooked fish dishes, scallops or fishcakes or an asparagus and lemon risotto.
