Tasting Notes:

A mixture of grapes sourced from the Swartland and Stellenbosch, and is produced as naturally as possible. A deep purple in the glass, there's something undeniably juicy, bitter sweet chocolatey and clove studded fruit laden about this. Dark chocolate dipped orange, a hint of menthol with a lovely warm earthiness- think sunbaked earth and terracota pots with juicy Autumn blackberries, smooth tannins and a spicy, dry aftertaste.

Alphabetical is a label that’s been around since first release of the red blend in 2010. Back then, it was known for having so many varieties in it (almost from A to Zinfandel), it was just about the whole alphabet. Made negociant-style, meaning the team use rented cellar space and work with several farmers and winemakers to purchase fruit, Alphabetical Red always delivered on drinkability and quality.

We work with carefully selected farms across the Western Cape. While this means far more time driving country roads, it also means we get to source great fruit and make wine that perfectly suits what we’re after. These farms are usually owned or managed by close friends, relationships that are key to our wines consistency and quality.

Our wines are honest products, naturally fermented and made with the utmost care to maintain the integrity of fruit, to offer drinkability as well as showcase varietal character. We work with some of the most amazing vineyards in the Western Cape, with all our wines produced and bottled at a cellar in Stellenbosch.
