Curious notes of bramble, ripe raspberry and freshly picked mint elegantly dominate the nose with a charge of sweet red and black fruit and wild spices on the palate. It is delicately handled with lots of freshness making it a perfect partner for a range of cuisine.
The Elpidios is produced in similar fashion to their main Grenache in terms of long, gentle extraction, the use of 50% on average whole bunches and then pressed off. After bottling, the wine is aged in bottle for 18 months before release. This vintage is based on grapes grown in granite soils from the Paardeberg, blended with structured shale/schists from the east, clay rich soils from the north and iron mixed soils from the west.
David & Nadia is a family owned Swartland driven project and they focus on a spectrum of organic, old and dry land bush vine vineyards from different areas with different soil types throughout the Swartland, farmed by like-minded people. They are members of the Swartland Independent Producers. In the vineyard the aim is for biological farming and in the cellar, work is as natural as possible. It is all about the soil and vineyards after all. Believing in a pure, fresh and natural style, where site and soil are at work with minimal influence from a winemaking point of view.
