Wine: The Hedonist Red Blend 2008.

The first wine to go on our great wine rack is The Hedonist Red Blend 2008. Made as an homage to the great Rhone blends from Chateuneuf du Pape and Hermitage, the wine is a mix of Syrah, Grenache, Carignan and Viognier. Grapes are from old bush vines up in the Swartland, and the wine is made as naturally as possible: fermented with natural yeasts, no excessive sulphur or any enzymes added throughout, and it’s neither fined nor filtered. The result is a robust yet refined wine that certainly delivers on expectation – created by a unique label and some recent word-of-mouth hype. And, of course, the name implies you shouldn’t just drink one bottle. Only five barrels were made. Contact us to get your hands on some.
