Another coup for Rick. This is believed to be the first ever single varietal release of Viura from South Africa. First crop fruit from Solms Delta in Franschhoek, the vines yielded just one barrel of wine. It was considered more of a hindrance by the cellar and was on the verge of being blended into obscurity. But one man’s headache is another man’s opportunity and in stepped Rick, allowing the wine to show its own identity. Blended with around 15% of the 2017 vintage from the same block to give the wine a bit of a lift, this is the result.
