‘The vines that supply the grapes for this wine are young at just seven years' old, but the decomposed granite soils of the Voor Paardeberg have produced something very impressive. Rose petal and Turkish Delight aromas segue into a palate that's complex, racy and fresh. 2021-26’ – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2021, 93/100

‘Not flashy but very fine, 2020 from rare Voor Paardeberg vineyard is subtle yet grippy, the week-long cold soak pre-ferment adding pleasing pithy nuance - onion skin hue tells of gris variant. Spiced, textured, lovely.’ – Platter’s Guide, 4.5* (93/100)

‘Grapes from Voor Paardeberg, seven days of skin contact; also includes a dash of Verdelho. The nose is rather neutral but hints of red apple and spice can be discerned while the palate has pleasing weight and texture offset by bright acidity, the finish long and pithy.’ – Christian Eedes, Winemag.co.za, 91/100

‘Expressive and beguiling, this light copper-toned wine is both fresh and decadent, with baked apple crumble, pecans and a leesy buttered toast character. This is all held upright by a zesty acidity involving grapefruit skin, fresh citrus and red fruit notes like strawberry - and even a hint of rosewater. Supple tannins and a lingering finish.’ – Momento Wines

Producer information Marelise Niemann began her Momento brand in 2013. Marelise has a passion for Grenache, which she realised after working with Eben Sadie in Priorat in 2010. Grenache is not a widely planted grape in South Africa, but her passion has led her to find the only Grenache Gris vineyard which is located in Voor-Paardeberg. She is lucky enough to work with vines all over the Western Cape which are unique expressions of their regions and terroir.
