Rascallion Wines Aquiver White 2017 Western Cape
The Rascallion Aquiver is made from grapes grown close to False Bay, 80% Chenin Blanc 10% Grenache Blanc and 10% Sauvignon Blanc
We are excited to take on these excellent wines from Rascallion, quirky, interesting blends ideal for dinking now and well priced too.
Rascallion Wines was set up as a negociant in 2017 by Ross Sleet after time spent in the UK and South African wine trade with the idea to make attractive easy drinking blended wines from classic grapes sourced in the Western Cape aided by winemaker Riane Strydom.
The Rascallion Aquiver is made from grapes grown close to False Bay, 80% Chenin Blanc 10% Grenache Blanc and 10% Sauvignon Blanc, picked into small crates and chilled before destemming and 6 hours skin contact. After settling the Chenin Blanc was inoculated with yeast and fermented in tanks. The Grenache was left to ferment naturally on the lees, as was the Sauvignon Blanc. The Chenin Blanc from the tank brings freshness to the wine and the Grenache from barrels adds to the creaminess, complexity and depth of the wine, with the Sauvignon Blanc adding fresh, limey fruit. Really attractive.
