Strange Kompanjie Old Vine Palomino (6 Bottle Case)
This product is currently sold out.
On the fecund plateau of Piekenierskloof there exists some extraordinary bush. Dwarfish, seemingly petrified stumps punctuate a high rolling landscape of rye-grass and rooibos. Amongst these are old plantings of Grenache Noir, Chenin Blanc and, here and there, Palomino. Strange Kompanjie has isolated one such block for a teeny release of old vine Palomino, planted in 1977.
Strange Kompanjie Old Vine Palomino is quiet on the nose and palate but persistent with notes of almond skin, fennel and even a little jasmine, all this follows on the palate with a bright natural acidity and a teasing top note of grassy fennel, almond nuttiness and the residual salinity of an old dry grown vineyard. Drink it slowly to take all this in.
Simply cooked fish dishes, scallops or fishcakes or an asparagus and lemon risotto.
