Painted Wolf Roussanne 2018
Painted Wolf is a complex, textural wine from Jeremy Borg. Elegant with waxy stone fruit and soft spicy vanilla aromas. The wine has a lovely texture with a long finish
Roussanne is grown by Willy Mostert on the south eastern side of the Paardeberg. The wines are planted on decomposed granite soils.
Jeremy and Emma Borg founded Painted Wolf Wines to create unique wines from a small number of growers in some of South Africa’s prime sites, including Paarl, Swartland and Stellenbosch – low-yielding areas which are mostly unirrigated and farmed organically.
They called their company Painted Wolf, after the endangered African Wild Dog. The Painted Wolf ‘pack’ is their community of talented individuals who bring the best available grapes, technical and practical skills, resulting a range of delicious, authentic and satisfying wines.
Five percent of Painted Wolf’s profits from UK sales are donated to Tusk Trust, which not only funds projects to protect wildlife, particularly endangered species, but also helps to alleviate poverty through sustainable development and education amongst rural communities which live alongside wildlife.
