It’s finally that time of the year where I can start releasing new wines (and make the bank man wipe that frown off his forehead). To start with a bang I decided to release the new version of The Spaniard (called: The Little Spaniard 2011). However, with this wine I need your help again.
Let me explain:  I am working on a rather large project (which I’m not at liberty to share at this point) and the Little Spaniard is a pilot blend and bottling of it. I’m very happy but that’s not primarily what’s important. The more important question is: are you?
By now most of you know the Spaniard wine well. It started off with the first release “The Spaniard 2007” (an interesting yet unusual combination of Mourvedre, Carignan, Grenache and Cinsaut). Soon after the release of The Spaniard, I made available the Educational range where we had all the individual varietals that made up the blend as single bottlings. My second vintage of The Spaniard was a fuller version of the previous Spaniard and I subsequently decided to release it as “The BIG Spaniard 2009”. It’s now sold out and I’m now releasing the next version of The Spaniard. I call it “The Little Spaniard 2011”. The wine is 40% Carignan, 30% Mourvedre, 20% Grenache and 10% Cinsaut. Therefore still more or less the same percentages of the same varietals but this is the little brother to the BIG Spaniard as the wine is more elegant and old world than its brother.
The grapes are from vineyards around Paarl and Wellington and the wine was made in larger older French oak vessels. It comes in at a mild 13% alcohol, which is extremely low for a hot climate, Mediterranean blend like this and sells for R59 a bottle.
OK, now here’s the thing: I would like to have your opinion on this wine. And no, I’m not handing out free bottles at this stage. That’s reserved for those of you who give me your feedback. The process is as follows: Reply to this mail now with your order and as usual, I will e-mail you an invoice and deliver to your house. You can then drink the wine and pop me a note with your opinion on the wine. Any opinion… I will then post it on my blog and yes there will be at least 4 cases of wine handed out to random guys (and girls of course) who’re willing to share their opinion. If you do not want to order 12 bottles of the same wine, drop me a mail for a special pre-release request and I will make up a mixed case for you with new wines. Last week I labeled 7 new wines so there are plenty interesting stuff coming. If you would rather like to buy with your credit card, click here to go to my website.
