'Grapes from the Voor Paardeberg. Includes 10% Verdelho. Pear, white peach, lime and dried herbs on the nose. Relatively lean with fresh acidity and a saline finish. Tightly wound and very striking.' – Christian Eedes, WineMag.co.za, 93/100

'The vines are still young in this Voor Paardeberg block, but Grenache Gris would appear to have a promising future in the Cape. Naturally fermented with some skin contact, it has some tannic grip, quince and lemon flavours and a wild herb undertone. Drink 2021-25.' – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2020, 93/100

'The 2019 Grenache Gris comes from a 6-year-old vineyard in Voor-Paardeberg. It has a clean, precise bouquet of cooking apple, pear and light sea spray aromas. The palate is well balanced with a fine bead of acidity. Saline and energetic, displaying impressive weight on the finish. Very fine. Drink 2022-2029.' – Neal Martin, Vinous, 91/100 (Apr 2021)

'Not flashy but very fine, 2019 from young Voor Paardeberg vines improves on 2018 (4 stars, 87 pts); subtly flavoured yet grippy, the week-long cold soak pre-ferment adding pleasing pithy nuance.' – Platter's Guide, 4.5* (90/100)

'An exotic and alluring wine with ripe yellow fruits, almond biscotti and pineapple on the palate, cut by a savoury, herbal edge. There is tension here between the fresh primary fruit and crisp acidity alongside a rich and waxy mouthfeel. Holds together wonderfully over two or three days, which augurs well for ageing.' – Marelise Niemann, 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.
