The WHITEBOMBThis is the release of THE WHITE BOMB - a Stellenbosch/Elgin blend of super ripe Viognier and Semillon - not for the faint of heart. This wine can only be produced in years of extreme climatic conditions. Truth is, in such years, you inevitably end up with a few big, high-alcohol, huge extraction wines. Such as this one! It comes in at an alcohol of 15%. The Story
It all started in 2011 with one German, the Hinterhofkabuff and a 2010 Stellenbosch-cast-away-in-the-corner red wine called THE BOMB. With an alcohol of 16.24 I thought the wine had no future. I was very wrong. So towards the middle of 2012 my phone rang and a German accent from Frankfurt said: “Pieter, I need a WHITE BOMB - a high octane white wine that’s over the top in every aspect, yet balanced”. So my first WHITE BOMB was released in 2013. The Platter tasting person said it’s like a belly dancer and gave it 4 out of 5. In 2013 I had no bomb’y wines in the cellar but the 2014 vintage produced 3 batches. 2 Viogniers, one from either side of Stellenbosch and a bit of Semillon from Elgin.
So the new WHITE BOMB - a follow up to my first 2012 release. Again some super powers with enough freshness.Technical InformationVintage: 2013How to order
