    Description

    A serious, expressive wine with each variety bringing different components to the wine. The Syrah vineyard is planted on extremely poor arid soils, yielding just small amounts of exceptionally concentrated fruit with intense, dark fruited flavours, whilst the Carignan and Mourvedre bring more perfume and pretty high toned notes. A multi layered wine - currants and orange peel, bruised sage and thyme, truffle and pencil lead. Dense and full bodied, but still very pure, with high notes of redcurrant jelly and cola nuts. No hurry to drink this one and pair with game, or rich, slow cooked meat dishes.

    Vinification: 100% whole bunch fermentation takes place in traditional open top concrete fermenters, (the Carignan and Mourvedre is co-fermented together) before being transferred to old oak barrels for nearly 18 months maturation.
    Region: Tulbagh
    ABV: 13.5
    75cl

    About the producer
    Third generation winemaker Martin Smith had his sights set on making wine from a young age. Surrounded by his dad, a winemaker himself, and his father's friends, also mostly winemakers, Martin got his first hands on taste of cellar life in his final year of high school, spending days scrubbing tanks and floors. Not put off by the realisation that winemaking is 99% cleaning, Martin chose to study at the revered Elsenburg agricultural college, and followed this up with a 10 year stint working in the States, where he gained extensive experience in both the vineyard and the cellar. The cry for home became too big though, and Martin returned to the Cape, taking up a job making the wine at Vilafonte.

    It was only in 2013 that Martin commenced Paserene, the first project in his own name. Today, Martin is based in Tulbagh, as well as being fortunate enough to picks from select sites, such as the Elgin Chardonnay site. If there's one word that Martin would like to describe his wines, it is their authenticity. No matter what it takes, Martin what's these wines to speak of their sites, and 'the careful dance between mother nature and the winemaker'.
