More about this wine from Western Cape, South Africa
If you've been around Wine Awesomeness for much time, then you already know how much affection we have for South African wine! The first ever edition of thebacklabel was all about this country that is riddled with contradictions. Its vineyards are planted in literally the world's oldest dirt, but it is just now that its winemakers are producing juice to such excellent quality.

This land of contradictions attracted an Australian winemaker! Mick Craven explored vineyards of the Western Cape of South Africa searching for sites speaking to the soul of this incredible place. Storm Point represents the idea that good things come to those who wait. That wait is 400 years in the making for the right formula of timing, people, and nature to create these wines. The juice is carefree, loaded with ripe plums, strawberries, and blueberries and quite zippy and gulp-able.

Brai your heart out. Even in January, find your way to a BBQ (brai) and throw on some hearty pork chops or even some vegan jackfruit (it's actually tasty)!
