6 Bottles 2017 4* Platter White blend Great gift!
Writer's block

Ours is about 3 feet by 3 feet, and on our left is the account's block. The marketing block is down the hall.

We're joking. Obviously.

Ours is at least 5 by 5, and on Wednesdays we're allowed to write in coffee shops to maintain the illusion that we're "successful" and "writerly".

Coming up with a write up for the simple sake of a write up does, however, become difficult when we're staring complete lack of creativity right in the face. But apparently asking management to cancel all the deals for the day isn't a viable fix.

As they so delicately put it, it'd be like a comedian having the option to suddenly cancel a show if they're not feeling up to it. Not on our watch, they said. You'll do a write up whether you like it or not, they said. And be funny, they said.

So here we are, doing a write up and being funny.

About

At Painted Wolf Wines, we celebrate and help conserve the endangered African wild dog, our most charismatic predator. Wild dogs and cyclists have much in common: individual prowess, teamwork, energy, camaraderie and a never-give-up attitude. Jeremy is an enthusiastic cyclist and has used this passion as an additional way to raise funds for conservation. He has organised rides through some of the remaining pockets of wilderness inhabited by wild dogs as well as sponsoring major cycling events like the Tour de Tuli, which benefits the Children in the Wilderness charity.

Tasting Notes

An exciting white Cape blend with layeredf lavours of stone fruit, minerality and citrus complemented with gentle oak. The wine is beautifully balanced, with a full rich mouthfeel and a bright long finish.

Food Suggestions

The wine has bright exotic flavours and goes with seafood, pork and chicken dishes, especially those with a South East Asian feel. It is also lovely with southern French cooking.

The Vineyard

Grapes sourced from a number of vineyards in Paarl, Stellenbosch and in the Swartland.

Winemaking

The grapes were handpicked and whole-bunch pressed and barrel fermented. Both wild and commercial yeast strains are used. Southern French/ Rhone white blends serve as inspiration for this wine.

Ageing Potential

This wine is drinking well now, however will continue to improve over the coming few years.
