Tasting Notes:

Grown entirely in the Tulbagh region the 2016 Union is dark and inky. Predominantly Syrah, this wine has ample complex aromas of blue berries, charcoal, violets and bacon fat. Exotic, smoky and thick with elegance as well as excellent definition. Extraordinary balance between primary fruit aromas and deep charry mineral components gives the wine an inviting natural warmth and broodiness. Big supple tannins with a reigned in acidity will make this wine a pleasure to drink for the next 20 - 30 years.

The label was created in collaboration by the same artists who designed Pasarene's Marathon and Chardonnay labels. The scene is set in Tulbagh and it carries the message of unification. The two entities of the previous wines, the girl (Mother Nature) and the swift (the Winemaker) finally found a place to be together. The tree in the background takes the role of stability and calmness and anchors them. All labels were hand pressed using an old Heidelberg press.

The Syrah is grown on an arid scaly soil, that yields no more than two tons of grapes per hectare. The soil can simply not handle a heavier crop load, the result: a super concentrated and dark wine. The Carignan and Mourvèdre grows about 200 metres to the south of the Syrah on a deeper loamy soil and yields a softer more perfumed wine.

The Carignan and Mourvèdre is fermented together to complement each other's strengths. The grapes are fermented in concrete open top tanks for about a month. After which the wine is transferred to third and fourth fill barrels to ensure the wines bright fruit integrity.

The wines spend 16 months in barrel and is then bottled and stored for another year in bottle before release.
