    The Drift Gift Horse Barbera flows into the glass in a deep and dense violet and pampers the nose with stunningly concentrated aromas of black fruits, ripe mulberries and perfectly ripened cherries. Its wonderful notes of fragrant spices and herbs in the background clearly distinguish this wine from other wines. South African fynbos and garden herbs continue on the palate and play wonderful background music for the dominating flavours of dark, even inky black fruit on the palate. It is a rich and powerful wine, but with a lot of freshness, clarity and rich and soft tannins. Masterly handwork - a class of its own!

    Treatment in the cellar

    The grapes were subjected to an extended cold swelling phase before spontaneous fermentation began. This spontaneous fermentation method, also known as "wild fermentation", does not allow commercial yeasts to start the fermentation process. This natural fermentation process starts with yeast found exclusively in the environment and on the fruit. 50% of the grapes were destemmed, while the remaining part of the whole bunch remained. The fermentation process, which took place in open fermentation tanks, was accompanied by five or six daily submersions of the cap, which ensures maximum colour and flavour extraction in the wine. Once fermentation was complete, the wine was pressed into 225-litre barrels where it was allowed to mature for 18 to 24 months. At the end of the aging process, the wine was bottled without refinement and unfiltered.
