Grape - Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon
Where - Franschhoek, South Africa
What - Martin Smith and Ndabe Mareda are the creative duo behind the Paserene winery in quaint Franschoek. Everything they do screams authenticity and a unique sense of place. When you see a Paserene wine on the shelf, there's never any doubt about who it came from.
The Shiner Chronicles White is the perfect example of the contemporary twist these guys are known for. It's fun, adventurous and beautifully bottled. It's a bit of a mystery wine - we have no idea how it's made or any of the fine details. But, what we can tell you without any doubt at all, is that it is just as much fun to drink as it is to look at.
It's vibrant in the glass with a fresh green tint. Tropical aromas are the first thing you'll notice, especially pineapple, papaya and melon. Maybe even a little dried banana. Overall it is a super floral wine with a good acidity that makes the finish long and lasting.
This is one to share with friends as you try to solve the mystery of The Shiner.
Fun, tropical, floral. Vegan. Low intervention. Organic practicing. ABV 13.5%.
