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!

    Good Hope, Good Wine - Mixed Case of 6 Wines

    With a rich winemaking history dating back to the mid-1600s, the Western Cape is like a beautiful bridge between the old world and the new. Not quite as in-your-face as wines from Australia, but much more approachable and easier to understand than those of France, South African wines run the gamut from the staunchly traditional to the fiercely modern.
