Story:

Our TAPPS Rosé is quite a small “de- luxe wine” – it’s really the juice extrac- tion from our best red wines before they start fermenting. This traditio- nal concentration method is also cal- led a free run, bleeding or Saignier. After extensive experience with Rosés from abroad, there was a desire to create a “non-German” wine possibly reminiscent of a Rosé from the Me- diterranean that was fun and not too bone dry. We implement this idea by using our aforementioned “deluxe grapes” and the ingenious compositi- on of individual grape varieties.

Oliver Zeter Tapps Red 2017

Fruit-driven wines for every day and every occasion! Easy drinking, bottoms up! 

Grape Varieties: 50% Merlot, 50% St. Laurent

Region: Pfalz

Tasting: Dry

Drinking temperature: 16-18°C

Alc.: 12,63% vol. 

Residual sugar: 2,4g/l

Acidity: 6,7g/l

Story:

The TAPPS red is a wine cuvée that co- mes from two vineyards in southern Palatinate:

St. Laurent grows in a light sandy soil near Nussdorf and the Merlot thrives on clay soil near Walsheim.

The vineyards mainly slo- pe to the south. The use of chemicals in the vineyard is kept to a minimum and insecticides are not used.

An eco- logical nutrient cycle is attained using green manure.

The two types of vines were processed separately due to dif- ferent harvest times which depend on the peak of maturity of each type.

The grape de-stemming took place imme- diately after the grapes were received at the winery.

Next the grapes were crushed, fermented and left on the skins for 10-14 days. An over-pum- ping of the pulp called remontage oc- curred twice daily. This was followed by gentle pressing with a pneumatic wine press. Following organic ma- lolactic fermentation, the wine was stored in large oak barrels for several months and then bottled unfiltered.

The interesting combination of spicy and tropical aromas, underlined by a bold acidity, makes this wine a versatile companion.

Nose: Upfront aromas of Golden Delicious apples and grapefruit, supported by tropical flavours of ripe guava.

Palate: A lively combination of summer fruits, sustained by a firm acidity and a dry, lingering finish.

Style: A medium-bodied wine made in a fresh and fruity New World style.

Grape Variety: Chenin Blanc

Food pairing: The interesting combination of spicy and tropical aromas, underlined by a bold acidity, makes this wine a versatile companion. Perfectly paired with fresh seafood dishes, catch of the day (hake), sweet and aromatic flavoured dishes, traditional South African bobotie, Cape Malay food styles and a selection of soft to semi-firm cheeses such as brie, gruyere and herb-crushed goat’s cheese.

Alc. 13,5% vol.

Total Acidity: 5.3g/l

Sugar: 2.2g/l

pH: 3,53

Vinification: Grapes came from Perdeberg in the Agter-Paarl region. Harvested at optimum ripeness, the grapes were destemmed and crushed. The free-run juice was fermented separately from the press component. After fermentation, the wine-maker chose to blend a small portion of the press component into the free-run to lend the wine some additional body and flavour.

Oliver Zeter Riesling 2018

Wines of stunning freshness and elegance, beautifully reflecting the full range of varietal character. The white wines are produced in stainless steel tanks. The reds are barrel-aged, yet the fruit character never cedes the stage. Bravo! 

Grape Varieties: 100% Riesling

Region: Pfalz

Tasting: Dry

Drinking temperature: 10-12°C

Alc.: 11,8% vol. 

Residual sugar: 4,6g/l

Acidity: 7,8g/l

Bottle size: 750ml

This Riesling comes from two vi- neyards in Mittelhaardt. When it comes to raciness and finish, the hillside grapes are cared for by skeletal-rich and sandy subsoil in Hambach. The vines are now nineteen years old and are characterized by moderate growth and very late maturity. The remaining wine comes from the Nußriegel vineyard in Ungstein, one of the finest sites in Mittelhaardt. In the 30-year old vineyard, grapes are grown which make greatly refined wines paired with a delicate length. The grapes were gently pressed using a pneumatic wine press immediately after the grapes were received at the winery. The best possible oxygen exclusion during pressing decreased undesired oxidation and the consequent loss of flavor. The fresh must cleared by means of its own settling. Subsequent fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks at 18° C and proceeded very slowly to protect the delicate flavors of the Riesling. Following fermentation, the young wine was left on the fine yeast for several months in order to preserve the freshness and to shape the structure of the Riesling. No fining was carried out before filling and it was only clarified by a filtration process using cellulose.

Ernie Els Big Easy Red 2016

The sublime and lively 2016 vintage shines through in perhaps the best Big Easy yet. A melange of ripe Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon is layered with waves of Grenache, Cinsaut, Mourvèdre and a touch of Viognier. Quite perfumed and fittingly complex, the palate is lined with chocolate, spice and confectionary cherries. A peppery nuance adds further character, all framed by a fine structure and juicy core.

Ready to drink, its long chalky finish will assist its 5 years ageing potential.

Grape Varities: 60% Shiraz,  20% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Grenache, 7% Cinsault, 3% Mouvedre, 5% Viognier

Alc. 14,05% vol. 

Residual Sugar: 3,7g/l

Total Acidity: 5,9g/l

pH: 3,61

In the Vinyard: The Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, Mourvèdre and Viognier were sourced from the Helderberg region within the Stellenbosch appellation. Cinsaut was obtained from various sites in Stellenbosch as well. Grenache was purchased from both Wellington and Stellenbosch vineyards.
