‘Grapes from Paardeberg. 30% whole-bunch fermentation before maturation lasting 12 months in foudre and then a further six months in tank. Wild strawberry, red and black cherry, earth, undergrowth and spice on the nose. Great fruit expression, bright acidity and powdery tannins – intense but not weighty, vital and refined. Alc: 12.65%.’ – Christian Eedes,, 95/100

‘Marelise Niemann's aim is to "preserve the vibrancy and energy" in her Grenache, sourced from two adjacent vineyards on the Paardeberg. Fermented with an early picked, 30% whole bunch component, it's a floral, delicate yet focused number, with red cherry and pomegranate flavours, negligible wood and subtly garrigue aromas. 2024-29’ – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2023, 93/100

‘Cherries, mulberries, and most notably raspberries lead a bright and vibrant bouquet before more savoury aromatics of rosemary, tree bark and cloves. Pinot-esque in its balancing of lightness and gravitas, the tannins are supple and once again pine-green in youth, the acid lively and the mouthfeel puckering and fresh.’ – Winemaker

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.
