Naudé White Blends – VinoSA Vertical Club™︎

Description

Ben’s notes – If you’re going to do a vertical tasting it’s normally for wines that are either single varieties or blended wines that follow the same formula. This is not the case here! All wines are bottled and held back until Ian is happy. The grape percentages change dependent on the year’s quality. Most importantly Ian tastes in the moment that he feels shows off the diversity of SA. This is a vertical like no other and I feels shows off each vintage to it’s best as well as the 18 different micro climates and vineyards that the parietals are picked from.

“Naudé Wines is the culmination of a journey that began more than 30 years ago. Since that first harvest, I’ve worked all over the world, hoping to craft wines that tell a story of time and place.”

“I love the diversity we have in South Africa. Not just of the people, but the soils, the microclimates, and the wine varietals that thrive under their own unique conditions. I’m fortunate to have been introduced to a few of these vineyards, and work with some of the wonderful grapes that they produce, many of these from certified old vines.”

“The grapes on these vines are storied, complex and unique. Each year they represent something different – whatever nature allows them – and with any luck, I don’t get in the way.” Ian Naudé
