Beautifully scented, this wine has dark blackberries and cocoa on the nose. Its lovely concentration whisks together sour cherry and vanilla tones alongside elegant, linear and firm tannins. A robust, impressive red with good ageing potential.

There is a stranger (extraño) in the Cape’s vineyards, named Tempranillo. Originally domiciled in Spain where it is revered as a noble grape, Tempranillo has now taken root in local soils and produces grapes of exceptional quality, like those used for this blend. This vibrant wine brims with strawberry, plum, and cherry flavours, backed by an earthy minerality. We've carefully integrated fellow Spaniards Grenache and Carignan - who add spice, fruit and freshness – to help temper this slightly rustic grape variety’s temperamental streak. With plenty of time to delicately blend in bottle, allow us to introduce our very own Extraño - a full bodied, food-friendly red that pairs perfectly with tapas and spicy Mediterranean dishes. To Life!

The Tempranillo and the Grenache noir grapes are from the Fairview farm in Paarl. The Carignan is from old bush vines in the Swartland. The Grenache noir from the block at Fairview is a bush vine, with its naturally upright shoots trained through a stok-by-paaltjie (vine on post) technique, which helps lift the grapes.

The grapes were handpicked and destemmed, after which the berries were sorted into open-top wooden tanks (foudres). Punch-downs took place daily and the grapes were basket-pressed after fermentation.

The wine was matured in French and American oak barrels (of which 20% was in new barrels) for 24 months.

Food pairing

Thanks to Tempranillo’s savoury character, this wine pairs well with all types of food. Our favourite? Stick close to Extrano’s Spanish roots, and enjoy with cured meats, roasted vegetables and spicy tapas.
