Strange Kompanjie Palomino 2021
Strange Kompamjie Unlimited are a circus tent of the Cape’s stranger grapes and blends. Championing the unfashionable, experimenting with the known and expressing the found before it gets lost. Mistakes are likely, fun certain.
The label reflects the wine's provenance high up on the Piekenierskloof plateau, where stumpy bush-vines appear frozen in poses of agony. Their meagre yield gives a wine that's bright, tangy, textural and distinctly salty on the finish.
Quiet on the nose and palate but persistent with notes of almond skin, fennel and even a little jasmine, all this follows on the palate with a bright natural acidity and a teasing top note of grassy fennel, almond nuttiness and the residual salinity of an old dry grown vineyard.
