Inspired by travelling the world of wine and grapes, especially the ancient vineyards of the Old World; Momento Wines was born – 'Wines that reflect all the elements involved: the sun, soil, water and earth – along with people, personalities, ideas and experiences.' Momento Wines are made and based in Bot River, a truly authentic and diverse region of South Africa.

90% of grapes from Swartland and 10% from Voor Paardeberg, grown in decomposed granite soil which gives it an elegant and pure personality.

Gentle winemaking with a ‘hands-off’ approach to show the delicate and more elegant side of this grape. After handpicking in the early morning, bunches were destemmed into small fermention tanks with 30% whole clusters. 4 days of cold soaking was allowed for colour and flavour to develop before a natural fermentation started. Punch downs were done by hand, twice a day, resulting in gentle extraction, preserving the “grape's" personality and natural character. After a slow and steady fermentation that reached around 28 degrees celsius, an additional post-fermentation maceration of 10 days was done to extract the finer, softer tannins. After a total of 5 weeks on the skins, grapes were gently pressed with a basket press into older 225 litre French oak barrels for malolactic fermentation and maturation.

16 months in 225l French oak barrels.

Food pairing

Pairs very well with local venison complimented with elements of bacon, cloves and a stewed fruit chutney.
