The Oddbins Take

The towns folk of Klein Karoo liked Leon Coetzee & Margaux Nel well enough, but the pair made them uneasy. Leon & Margaux thought too big and were too keen to push boundaries for people with simpler designs. They would rebuke Leon and Margaux, asking why they experimented with unconventional winemaking methods and uncommon grape varieties. “Why can’t you settle down and grow a nice Chenin Blanc?” The people of the town would enquire.

But that experimental spirit, that led Edison to invent the light bulb or Frankenstein to loose an electric zombie on his pitchfork wielding neighbours as retribution for them all sharing his Netflix password, is not so easily suppressed. Unperturbed by the local’s scepticism, Leon & Margaux released a label called Jikken Bareru (experimental barrels). The tiny parcel of wine made from Portuguese grape Tinta Barocca, was so rich, with bright flavours of damson, kirsch, bramble exotic spice and cocoa nibs, that one sip won over the people of Klein Karoo as they realised a little experimentation was just what the town needed!

    If you're underwhelmed by Rioja, unexcited about Bordeaux and think that 'farmyardy' is a disgusting way to describe wine, then this could be the case for you. From an intensely juicy brooding Chilean Cabernet Sauvignon to a zesty Kiwi Sauvignon Blanc, this tour of the New World will satiate vinous desires of the richer, fruitier and longer haul variety.
