About the producer: From Richard Kelley MW “The Liberator”. Over the past 20 years, Richard Kelley has become one of the most respected authorities on South African wines. Between 1995 and 2005, he lived and worked in the Cape, witnessing the renaissance of the post apartheid wine industry. Throughout this time, he established a healthy rapport with the great and the good of the local wine scene, affording him access to their distinguished cellars. Along the way he started to discover small parcels of wine and engaged some of the finest Cape winemakers in project work with him. You might say he became a “Cape Crusader”.
Description: This Portuguese varietal is named after Portuguese explorer Vasco da Gama and if you are looking for something a little different, yet deliciously drinkable, you should look no further! It captures perfectly the rich, textural dark fruit character of Portugal’s most revered black grape. Really juicy, savoury and rounded with weight and a lovely note of chocolate on the finish.
