The Vin Pi wines from Tulbagh Mountain Vineyards (now Fable Mountain Vineyards) were  made by air-drying Chenin Blanc grapes and here’s the interesting part, applying the solera system so that the final wine would be a fractional blend  incorporating various different  vintages, the number changing with each release.

Maiden release Vin Pi One, from three different vintages, was bottled in January 2006, total production 1 050 half bottles. It now appears deep amber in colour and is rich and comforting to drink with notes of molasses, straw and some subtle fynbos. A curiosity but a fascinating one.

Score: 89/100.
