Native South African Bryan MacRobert grew up in a farming family, and has been quietly making some of that country's best value wines. He fell in love with a girl from Rioja as well as the region's wines (we forget in which order) but quickly became fascinated with the inimitable terroirs and endless potential for wines in the region. A proponent not only of organic viticulture, but also a strong believer in the importance of legacy organically cultivated vines on top quality sites, Bryan is picky about where he grows and sources vines. The winemaking is no frills but clearly well thought out and opinionated; think lots of smaller cement vats and wood in sizes greater than 225L barriques. He's a fan of Stockinger cooperage. Particularly with the whites, these are wines where transparency, minerality and acidity drive the style. From the winery: "This wine is made from Grenache, one of the main red varieties cultivated in Rioja. The grapes are picked by hand, sorted, destemmed, naturally fermented and aged for one year in 600-litre barrels. This wine has a pale ruby colour with primary fruit aromas of red fruit such as cranberry, raspberry, strawberry and red cherry. Secondary aromas such as brioche and cinnamon due to the lees contact and ageing for one year in barrel. The palate is light and textured with a soft tannin. Good acidity, body and length."
