2016 Named after De Meye river Stellenbosch Full bodied wine Deep ruby colour Ripe blackcurrant charm
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

De Meye, named after the De Meye River in Holland is where the first Myburgh who came to South Africa in 1665 used to live. The farm is situated in Stellenbosch, sub region known as Greater Simonsberg, one of South Africa's most prestigious winemaking areas. Previously, all the grapes were sold, but in 1997 it was decided to renovate some of the old buildings and to produce our own, uniquely styled wines.

De Meye is proud to be part of the South African wine industry and continually drives towards producing "wines of distinction" and excellence that has characterized the wines from Stellenbosch and specifically our privately owned wine farms, which undoubtedly are the heartbeat of this magnificent region.

Vinification/Maturation

Tasting Notes

Full-bodied wine with a deep ruby colour. It has a ripe blackcurrant charm with hints of chocolate and spice, which is well integrated with oak. There is an appealing softness on the palate with a long finish. A well-balanced wine which is ready to drink now, but will repay for further maturation. Serve with red meat, roasts and grills, and full flavoured casseroles.
