The nose has lovely aromatics of flowers and fresh herbs before citrus, apple and peach while the palate shows great depth of fruit and an exhilarating line of acidity before a savoury finish. The product of both astute viticulture and winemaking.

Danie and Hugo Carinus have taken some liberty in calling their wine label Carinus Family Vineyards in that they are only very distantly related. They are, however, good friends and grape growers who supply some of the leading producers in the country from vineyards situated in Devon Valley, Polkadraai and the Swartland. Their label has been around for a few years but in 2016 inveigled rising star Lukas van Loggerenberg to oversee production with good result. From a 1981 Swartland vineyard but involving more acute viticulture and a barrel selection in the cellar.

From the Rooidraai vineyard in the Swartland, this wine is nameed after the farm and the red soils the vines are grown on.

Harvest involved four pickings, each at different levels of ripeness, providing the building blocks to achieve maximum complexity. Fermentation occurred spontaneously and maturation lasted 10 months in old oak.

Food pairing

Best paired with seafood, sushi, white meat, game bird, fresh salads, and tapas style meals of olives and cheeses.
