“VLOERMOER”

FORTIFIED FLOR-FERMETNED CHARDONNAY

Ever since I was a young winemaking student, I have adored the fortified amontillado wines from Spain. Inspired, naive and insatiably adventurous I started with a traditional Spanish flor yeast. After bottling and consuming a few fino-style barrels, I allowed the remainder to slowly mature for 15 years in barrel. The result is this never-to-be-repeated labour of love. It pairs in an out-of-the-world way with hard sheep cheese, kudu biltong, venison steak tartare and even sushi. But  perhaps it goes best while watching the sunset on a cold, secluded, windswept, South African beach.

This is a surprisingly versatile wine. It loves a 24 hour, slow-cooked black Daal curry. And amazingly goes well with sushi, especially sustainable white meat sashimi. And perhaps most surprising of all, try this with deep fried haggis bitterballen with a bernaise dipping sauce.
