Momento Grenache Noir 2019

By , 29 June 2021

Marelise Niemann says she likes local Grenache Noir for its understatement and her 2019 is nothing if not that. From Swartland grapes, winemaking involved 30% whole-bunch fermentation before maturation lasting 16 months in old French oak barrels.

Subtle aromatics of red berries, floral perfume, dried herbs, and spice precede a palate that is delicate and poised – pure fruit, bright acidity, and powdery tannins. Immensely pleasurable to drink. Price: R300 a bottle.

CE’s rating: 92/100.
