Paserene Chardonnay 2016
The 2016 Paserene Chardonnay shows a light golden colour with a beautiful green hue that is a tell-tale sign of Elgin fruit. The aromas combine great richness and elegance with abundant aromas of lemon zest, white peach, oatmeal and citrus blossoms. Gentle oak integration at 30% new super tight grain Burgundian barrels enhance and round out the palate. The mouth-feel is broad and luxurious with incredible length and a vibrant yet polished acidity that suggest the wine will benefit from 2 more years of bottle age.
The girl on the front label represents the beauty of Mother Nature, and the area where the wine is from.
Paserene Union 2016
44% Syrah, 34% Carignan and 22% Mourvèdre
Finally… the Union was a long time coming, but to find the right terroir for this specific style of wine took a lot of effort and thoughtful planning. Grown entirely in the Tulbagh region the 2016 Union is dark and inky. Predominantly Syrah, this wine has got ample complex aromas of blue berries, charcoal, violets and bacon fat. Exotic, smoky and thick with elegance as well as excellent definition. Extraordinary balance between primary fruit aromas and deep charry mineral components gives the wine an inviting natural warmth and broodiness.
The label scene is set in Tulbagh and it carries the message of unification. The two entities on the other labels, the girl (Mother Nature) and the swift (the Winemaker) finally found a place to be together. The tree in the background takes the role of stability and calmness that anchors them.
Paserene Marathon 2016
53% Cabernet Sauvignon, 42% Petit Verdot and 5% Carménère
The wine exhibits a deep ruby to purple colour. On the nose it shows an appealing bouquet of dark preserved fruits like black currants and black cherry paste with camphor, cedar and crème de cassis. Definitely a more layered wine than singular. This transcends into a mineral whiff of crushed rocks, liquorice and espresso roasts. The wine boasts a very unique and authentic aroma profile that is young and exciting. The palate is dense and rich with sweet tannins that are well integrated.
The swallow on the front label represents the winemaker's relentless pursuit of acquiring knowledge in South Africa and California to produce his style of wines. It further relates to the warm, agile personality of the wine.
