Bringing Back The Joy Skin Contact Sauvignon Blanc 2019
By Christian Eedes, 31 March 2020
Bringing Back The Joy is made by Chris Groenewald, whose day job is managing sales for Mullineux & Leeu, with grapes from Danie Carinus of Carinus Family Wines in the cellar of Lukas van Loggerenberg – juice and skins into two plastic eggs for two weeks before pressing, then back into the eggs for nine months.
Dull amber in colour, the nose shows cut apple, a hint of honey, dried herbs and white pepper. The palate is rich, broad and flavourful, a very slight grippy quality to the finish. It’s pleasantly rustic – any lack of refinement it makes up for in interest factor. Not yet released but due to sell for R160 a bottle.
CE’s rating: 90/100.
