The Wine Thief Nooer 2018 (red: Souzão, Touriga Naçional, Tinta Barocca)


The Wine Thief Nooer 2018 is a unique red blend of Souzão, Touriga Naçional and Tinta Barocca where each cultivar was harvested and treated separately

The Tinta Barocca and Souzão coming from Calitzdorp, and the Touriga Naçional coming from a 45 year-old vineyard site in Paarl

The Souzão and Touriga were naturally fermented in old 300L French Oak barrels, where the Tinta was fermented in a 5000L Foudre, destined to be made into Port down the line

Inspiration for the blend hailed not only from the classic Portuguese expressions we rarely get to taste in South Africa, but from the pioneering winemakers playing with new and unique ways of expressing these cultivars in various South African terroirs

Intense blackberry and boysenberry fruit power on the nose, with slate and smoke lingering

Structure is very much present, but not overpowering of the multiple layers achieved by blending these three classic Portuguese cultivars

Sommelier-Winemaker Collaboration with Leon Coetzee & Margaux Nel of The Fledge & Co
