David & Nadia Elpidios 2019


A blend of Grenache noir (38%), Syrah (36%), Pinotage (10%), Carignan (9%) and Cinsaut (7%), this 2019 vintage again includes a portion of wine that was fermented and matured in a concrete vessel – both the Grenache and Syrah. Along with the concrete vessels, the wine was also matured in old 500L neutral French oak barrels and a 4,100L foudre (for the Pinotage). Similarly with the straight Grenache noir, the “Elpidios” undergoes a long, gentle extraction with around 50% whole-bunches before being pressed off. After bottling, the wine was aged in bottle for 18 months before release. This vintage is again based on grapes grown in granite soils from the Paardeberg, blended with structured shale/schists from the east, clay rich soils from the north and iron mixed soils from the west.
