Tasting Notes

Delicate violet, raspberry and plum on the nose, with hints of scrub and hops. Light through the palate with juicy red fruit and a lively finish. Very food friendly; perfect with hearty Italian dishes like as pizza or risotto, or served slightly chilled in the Spring and Summer.

The Producer

According to winemaker Corlea Fourie, Chasing Rabbits captures the fine tension and clarity of young Grenache fruit. The grapes come from a certified organic vineyard called Gesamelike Wei, which means communal pasture – the site was originally used for grazing by nomadic trek farmers. The current vineyard was established in 2016, with bush vines planted on decomposed granite soils.

Vinification

Viticulture is certified organic. The fruit is hand harvested and destemmed to a stainless-steel tank, where fermentation takes place naturally. After 3 days on skins the wine is gently pressed and aged in neutral vessels until bottling.
