Comic Relief Red Nose White 2008

Member Review by winescribbler:

Prickly on the palate, fresh, clean and prim on the nose. Crisp and long lasting pear flavours, with a green tanginess to the flavour. Very good sherbet, slightly confected, finish. Quite full but with a lightness of touch via a pea-green twist on the finish. Again good value. http://www.spittoon.biz/red_nose_day_wines.html

SAAM is Afrikaans for ‘together’. This captures the very essence of the SAAM Mountain Vineyards’ wine growing team at Eensaamheid Farm. Located at the foot of Perdeberg Mountain, SAAM Mountain Vineyards is a new South African venture that is uniting winemaker and farmer under a common love of the land and its produce. The area is known locally as the Mountain of Horses after the wild mountain zebra, the Quagga, which used to roam there. SAAM Mountain Vineyards unites a group 40 South African growers who farm vineyards that span the premium growing areas from Paarl to the Durbanville Hills. The vineyards produce, on average, less than 7 tonnes per hectare - around half the average yields of other wineries of this scale, ensuring that quality of fruit and intensity of flavour is naturally at the heart of SAAM Mountain’s wines. The team, whose inspiration and dedication to the wines is unrelenting aim to show exactly what South Africa can produce by creating clean, pure fruit flavoured wines of real varietal character. A combination of care and technology in the vineyard and the winery ensures that quality is always our primary focus. Innovation is top of the agenda as we experiment with infra-red photography, selective vine plucking, single vs. double bunch vine production, breathable tanks for micro-oxygenation and basket pressing for top quality cuvees.
