Consider the permutations of taking indigenous grapes from their homes and transplanting them to a new one. There are over 3000 grape types, so the stylistic possibilities are endless. And when we find a new combination it's genuinely exciting. And so it is here: an Italian Barbera makes its new home in sun-soaked Swartland. What's striking about this wine is just how fresh and exhilarating it is. It's just got such purity and drive, all cherry fruit and liquorice assailing your senses.
