Strange Kompanjie The Tea Leaf 2021

13.5% abv

Vol- 75cl

On the nose there are notes of ripe peach, salted butter and macadamia. The palate has firm, high-key fruit, a gentle, sandy texture true to the vineyard soil and persistence. Ultimately this is a deeply satisfying wine made from a blend of high quality bush vine fruit.

Old Vine Project certified blocks of Paarl Chenin planted in 1977, Franschhoek Crouchen Blanc planted in 1976 and Grenache Blanc make up this bush vine brew. In all these blocks the indigenous rooibos tea plant grows wild. Grapes are harvested in the early hours and then a further selection is made by hand at the winery to select the best fruit. The wine is naturally fermented for 9 months in 600 litre French oak barrels. Finally, the wine is coarse filtered and bottled.

What’s this then? SKU is a casual band of happy ferments. A circus tent of the Cape’s stranger grapes and blends.We will champion the unfashionable, experiment with the known and express the found before it gets lost. Mistakes are likely, fun certain. Welcome to Strange Kompanjie, a Kultivar Club for the Underdog.
