Momento, Tinta Barocca 2018 Bottle size: 750mlSouth Africa, Western Cape
'Delicate expression of 4+ decade old vines. 2018’s bright acidity lights up wild berries, lively dry tannins add polished leather undertone. Bot River, Stellenbosch & Swartland provenance, as 2017 (3.5 stars, 85 pts).' – Platter's Guide, 4*
'Cherries, cassis, roses and cinnamon joined by porcini mushroom and soy make this an alluring and complex nose added to by the ripe phenolic grip and textured, coating palate. The balance between lifted and bright primary red fruit notes and that savoury gravitas mimics high end Pinot Noir. Tightly wound and complex, this wine can age beyond 2025.' – Marelise Niemann, Winemaker

|Producer information||Marelise Niemann began her Momento brand in 2013. Marelise has a passion for Grenache, which she realised after working with Eben Sadie in Priorat in 2010. Grenache is not a widely planted grape in South Africa, but her passion has led her to find the only Grenache Gris vineyard which is located in Voor-Paardeberg. She is lucky enough to work with vines all over the Western Cape which are unique expressions of their regions and terroir.|
