Warm fuzzies.

Warm fuzzies.

Cape Legends, the fine wine division of producer-wholesaler Distell, recently relaunched its Tukulu range of wines produced on Papkuilsfontein in Darling as Earthbound with Fairtrade certification – for every bottle that is sold, R6.50 is re-invested into the farm and its people. Out of the five wines available, only the Pinot Noir is not organic.

Tasting notes for the three I sampled as follows:

Earthbound Organic Sauvignon Blanc 2013
Price: R45
Shy nose. Lightly fruity (granadilla) with moderate acidity. Inoffensive but rather simple.

81

Earthbound Organic Chenin Blanc 2013
Price: R45
Notes of pear and peach. Relatively good concentration and fresh acidity making for easy drinking.

82

Earthbound Organic Pinotage 2012
Price: R54
Red cherry, some fynbos and an overt sawdust-like note. Light-bodied with fresh acidity and fine tannins. No great complexity.

81

There is also an Organic Cabernet Sauvignon in the range.
