It’s a long story…Pieter says it’s a "wine dedicated to the interesting super ultimate misunderstanding of the South African Police thinking I killed my son...". (Familiemoord in Afrikaans = family murder. The background to this is that Pieter was mischievously covering his son with spadefuls of dirt in his back garden one day - and was reported by a neighbour to the police for infanticide. The heavies came round and Pieter had to do some explaining. The press cutting is reproduced on the label!).
From 59% Swartland Grenache, 22% Darling Cinsaut and 19% Elgin Pinot Noir, this tastes like a Cape Châtauneuf-du-Pape. Extravagant Grenache aromas of cooked strawberries, and then a voluptuous but aromatic mouthful. Now-2020
