"... [This] is without a doubt the prettiest of nouveau and of all the bacos ever. There is no fizz, no re-ferment and it is very drinkable. A stable, dark fruit vetted, better than many gamay, thirst-quenching drink. A South African Jurgen Gouws Intellego meets Jacques de Klerk Thirst by way of baco noir in Prince Edward County. Fun, juicy, easy. Well done... 88"

A lighter and fresher style of Baco Noir released only a few months after harvest. Made without the use of oak, with notes of cherry, violets and candied berries. An easy drinking, and delicious red.
-
This Baco was made in the style of that “other” Nouveau wine region - the full, ripe, berry clusters were put into a tank and a film of C02 added to the top (displacing oxygen). By gravity, the berries at the bottom are slightly crushed and start the ferment. As the majority of berries are unbroken, fermentation happens inside the berry yielding fresh, pure flavours.

Only 36 cases made... and only a few are left!
