Momento, Grenache Gris 750ml 2018South Africa, Western Cape
'Superstar grower Willie Mostert supplies the grapes from his Voor Paardeberg farm for this old wood-aged Grenache Gris. Showing the acidity, minerality and focus that are typical of the variety, it has extra structure from seven days of skin contact, racy minerality and understated oak. Drink 2021-26.' – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2019, 94/100
'Second vintage of this wine made from Voor Paardeberg grapes. Includes 5% Verdelho. Citrus, peach and red apple plus a hint of smokiness. Very pure and focused on the palate – a lovely line of acidity and a saline finish being stand-out features.' – Christian Eedes, WineMag.co.za, 93/100
'Spiced pear with a stony overlay. This has great freshness for Grenache Gris but has not compromised on the fruit depth. The spice is almost like incense. Succulent and long.' – Julia Harding MW, JancisRobinson.com, 16.5/20
Marelise Niemann began her Momento brand in 2013. Marelise has a passion for Grenache, which she realised after working with Eben Sadie in Priorat in 2010. Grenache is not a widely planted grape in South Africa, but her passion has led her to find the only Grenache Gris vineyard which is located in Voor-Paardeberg. She is lucky enough to work with vines all over the Western Cape which are unique expressions of their regions and terroir.
