2012 JACKAL BIRD, Fable Mountain. Western Cape, South Africa

Bin:  270

Alcohol percentage:  13%

Area:

From FMV website:
“The Jackal Bird is named after the large raptors that have made their home at Fable. We see them most afternoons as they catch the thermals soaring high above the mountains. They are so graceful and free.
The wine is a combination of old vine Chenin blanc, Grenache blanc, Roussanne, Viognier and Chardonnay. The grapes are sourced from a variety of different sites across the Western Cape. The fruit is all hand harvested, whole bunch pressed and naturally fermented in a mixture of concrete eggs, oak and stainless steel.”

Producer:

And from the website of Richard Kelley, the UK agent:
“It was only a matter of time until Tulbagh would start to attract a small band of pioneers, keen to exploit the region’s unrealised potential. None more so than Charles Banks who headed an American consortium to acquire (what was then known as) Tulbagh Mountain Vineyards in October 2010. Banks, as you may be aware, was a previous investor in Screaming Eagle.”

Old Bridge rating:

Fine example of South Africa’s trump card (blended whites based around old vine Chenin) that have become one of the trendiest categories amongst wine buffs worldwide. Ripe and rich with an exotic element and yet in no way heavy or over-the-top
