THE CAPE BLEND 2022, W.O. SWARTLAND ,
PINOTAGE/PETITE SIRAH/TOURIGA NACIONAL
Just as Eolus ruled the winds in ancient Greek mythology, Wind Song pays homage to this powerful deity and draws inspiration from the untamed beauty of the Cape of Storms. The cool Atlantic sea breezes, blown onto the Riebeek Kasteelberg foothills, are one of the most profound terroir elements, which sets this wine apart from any other Cape Blend.
This distinctive wine blend is a testament to the artistry of winemaking, showcasing the ingenuity and creativity of the Swartland region. With its black truffle aromas, umami richness, smoky nuances, and meaty flavors, it offers a truly captivating and memorable tasting experience. The harmonious marriage of Pinotage, Petite Sirah, and Touriga Nacional, combined with the influence of the Swartland’s terroir, elevates this wine to a league of its own. Savor each sip and allow yourself to be transported to the enchanting bush vine vineyards of Riebeek Kasteel, where innovation and tradition converge in a truly exceptional bottle.
Wind Song is a tribute to my parents, Martina & Francois Victor Gentis, who gave me the opportunity to evolve into the winemaker I am today. The Wind Song “Eolus”, was hand drawn, designed & trademarked by my parents in the early 1970’s. Today, it signifies our ultra-premium Swartland Cape Blend.
Each bottle was hand engraved and is our commitment to quality and exclusivity and honouring 3 generations of craftsmanship in the Gentis family.
Black plum, savoury & silk infusion with rich roasted vanilla and coffee extracts. Wild black truffel aromas with a savoury hint of umami.
