The Liberator, P.S. I Love You 750ml 2016South Africa, Stellenbosch
Rick is the alter ego of Master of Wine Richard Kelley – an intrepid Cape crusader seeking to liberate rare wines from across the Cape. Each ‘episode’ is a once-off and, until now, the Liberator wines have been solely for export.
P.S. I Love You is a crunchy, medium-bodied Petite Sirah from De Morgenzon. Also known as Durif, the variety is a descendant of Shiraz. Mostly planted in the US and Australia, there are just 14 hectares in SA. It is a dark and brooding wine, offering superb freshness, wild herbs and punchy drinkability.
While we liberate parcels from these prestigious addresses, this is an amazing opportunity to help liberate the local farming community. R25 from the sale of each bottle will be donated to spieel.org – an amazing NPO that develops and implements applied arts therapy programmes around the winelands. Having seen the success of their challenging endeavours, Wine Cellar is delighted to find ways to offer them support.
'P.S. I Love You’ was sourced from some of the 14-hectares of Durif (aka Petite Sirah) planted in the Cape. Given that there is more Petite Sirah found in the States than the rest of the world put together, it seems appropriate that the label was painted by an American artist. Julian Alden Weir was an impressionist artist and a founding member of ‘The Ten’, a loosely allied group of disillusioned artists who banded together in 1898 to exhibit their work. This painting, better known in artistic circles as ‘The Letter’, dates to 1910.
