Fire by Night is a single origin Chenin Blanc wine grown on our own Paardeberg property called Nuwedam. The Paardeberg holds a mythical place in our minds. It is both ground zero for the quality revolution that's sweeping the Cape, and home base for some of our country's wine heroes. Previously under-valued, the Paardeberg sports an embarrassment of riches: pure decomposed granite soil and an abundance of dry-farmed old bushvines.
What can you expect?
As usual, the wine is bright and bristling, but still the most restrained of our bottlings. It usually takes a few years to show its full potential. Now, its youthful nose shows thatch, fynbos, and some citrus. The tightly layered pallet is slightly saline and quite pithy. There are hints of honey and pear to come. I think this wine will grow into something outstanding.
