BlankBottle Kortpad Kaaptoe - Straight Fernão Pires (also called Maria Gomes in Portugal) from a 34-year old non-irrigated bush-vine vineyard planted in sandy topsoil with clay below on the Darling side of the Swartland.
Peter accidentally stumbled upon this vineyard whilst taking a shortcut along dirt roads heading towards Cape Town from Darling.
So the wine is called “Kortpad Kaaptoe” (Afrikaans for “The shortest way to Cape Town”). This is the 3rd vintage of the wine and the style moved a bit towards the elegant side of Maria Gomes.
Spice-driven with fragrant finesse, but a strong potent core.
