2019 OPPOSITES ATTRACT, The Liberator. Constantia, S. Africa

Bin:  478

Alcohol percentage:  14%


‘The Liberator’ is a project by English MW (and expert in South Africa) Richard Kelley who ‘liberates’ small parcels of wines languishing in the cellars of smart wineries, and sells them at very sensible prices.
Richard’s notes on this ‘episode’, which is Number 32:
“Rick, ever the hopeless romantic, believes it may just be a cruel joke of nature that many of us are attracted to people very much unlike themselves. Wouldn’t it be simpler (and a lot less messy) if couples were drawn to those whose personalities are more like their own, rather than those who appear polar opposites…?
Opposites Attract is a case in point. Here, the Syrah component is represented by the Queen of Hearts, the card of beauty, magnetism, affection and idealism: the much-loved mother, indispensable sister or adored daughter. A sincere and loving woman with a tender heart. For a man, this card is symbolic of his sweetheart or lover, the woman he will marry. The Queen of Hearts should evoke a feeling of unconditional love.
The suitor to the Queen of Hearts is represented by the King of Spades – the Merlot in our blend. He is an authority of Wisdom and Mastery. The first card in the deck, he was born on the first day of the year and known for his spiritual energy and wisdom.
And what of the token presence of Cabernet Franc…? A classic case of “Two’s company, three’s a crowd”, a proverb with origins that date back at least to the mid-1600s. Rick states this grape is represented by the Joker in the pack, which plays a small, but significant role, as the wildcard in our blend.”
