Organic Stellenbosch 2018
Why do some people leave the microwave on 0:01?

And then just walk away like they haven't committed the biggest atrocity any kitchen has ever seen. They probably also make tea in the order: milk, hot water, sugar and then the tea bag.

It creates the perfect precipice of frustration: keep it bottled in and it'll eat away at you, but if you say something you're the overreacting party-pooper who sucks the fun out of everything.

We realise this might seem a little abstract (for context, somebody did this exact thing at the OneDayOnly headquarters at around 4 o'clock on Tuesday afternoon and it's been bugging us since) but it must be addressed on a grand scale so these perpetrators can understand the extent of their heinous crime.

Anyhoo, here are a truckload of great deals and if that doesn't immediately make you forget about all of your problems in the world, you clearly handle stress differently to us.

About

A new release of an old stalwart. Ladybird white was the first organic white wine we produced. It is a wine always punching far above its weight and 2018 is no exception. A regular 4.5 stars Platter wine, this vintage consists again mostly of Chardonnay with a splash (15%) of Chenin Blanc.

In the vineyard & cellar


Grapes are all whole bunch pressed and come from low yielding Organic vineyards. Mostly clay soils which are high in organic material and give fatness to the final wine. The winemaking is quite simple. Everything they teach you in modern winemaking we just ignore and do exactly the opposite. After whole bunch pressing, we do natural settling with no enzymes and also no fining agents. Fermentation is done 100% wild, warm, quick and with no real Sulphur. We use 50% old 500-litre barrels, 25% Concrete Nomblot eggs and 25% stainless steel. We leave the finished wine on the sediment for eleven months with no further Sulphur additions. Some years Malolactic happens and some years not. The wine is racked early January, blended and then bottled with a filtration. 

Tasting notes


Beautiful light straw colour. Complex nose with some toffee, hay and white peach. Medium-bodied palate with a rich creamy texture and some minerals. The wood is very well integrated with great balance, complemented with an almost creamy acidity. A wine to complement food but with enough excitement and freshness to drink on its own. Drink 1 – 4 years after harvest.
