For a number of years, chefs around the world have reinvented well known dishes by deconstructing them – focusing on and highlighting each element within the dish. As a winemaker I take grapes from certain clones that each offer unique flavour profiles and which, when grown in certain soils, within particular microclimates, bring subtle nuances to the finished wine when blended.
I am proud and excited to announce the launch of my Deconstructed range – showcasing particular examples of individual specific sites, soils and clones from the Elgin region. I have long championed regionality and this new range focuses on this concept and the incredible quality of wines from this cool climate region.
Deconstructed Chardonnay 2015 – three Elgin Chardonnays presented in a wooden case comprising:
Groenland Mountain Bokkeveld Shales CY548 Chardonnay 2015
Groenland Mountain Koffieklip CY96 Chardonnay
Lake District Bokkeveld Shales CY95 Chardonnay
Deconstructed Syrah 2014 – two Elgin Syrahs presented in a wooden case comprising:
Lake District Cartref SH22 Syrah
Lake District Cartref SH9C Syrah
Deconstructed is an extremely limited release of less than 250 bottles of each wine, and I am thrilled at how it will allow wine aficionados to understand the unique Elgin terroir with regard to climate, soils and clones and imbibe these elemental wines, some of which are components of my Elgin Clonal Selection Chardonnay and Syrah.
I am now accepting reservations for the Deconstructed range which will be released in early 2017 – prices are available on request. For more information and reservations please email email@example.com
