Badger & Mountain Wines
I recently discovered Badger & Mountain wines situated in Tulbagh, known for its quality soil and climate the Badger & Mountain wines reflect the valley.
Their vision is to safeguard the stability amongst planted and natural parts of the farm plus the conservation of natural vegetation types and alien plant control. Driven to create a natural wildlife access strip, through which they can navigate, resulting in a better environment and wines made from that very source.
BADGER & MOUNTAIN’S PHILOSPHY
Badger & Mountain is passionate about the undercurrents and interaction between man and nature, together creating a healthy soil and environment, by using natural predators in the vineyard, thereby eliminating the use of pesticides.
They firmly believe in minimal interference, hand picking whole bunch – and natural fermentation with older oak aging thus ensuring the wines reflects its terroir.
They have teamed up with Endangered Wildlife Trust as part of our belief system.
Proceeds will be donated to their ongoing projects. You can follow their story at https://www.ewt.org.za/ or https://www.facebook.com/
LET’S GET SIPPING
Inspired by Cape Town’s beautiful Fauna and Flora, they’ve aimed to create a novel yet delectable Cape Red & Cape White Blends.
CAPE RED BLEND
The wine is well structured and the ideal complement for cold winters yet light enough for warm summer evenings. The nose has subtle cherries and aromatic spice, the mouthfeel is well balance through harmonious flavours of cocoa and blackberries. As a result of the limited use of additives the wine is suitable for vegetarians and vegans.
Blend Consist of 59% Syrah 31% Pinotage 5% Petit Verdot 5% Pinot Noir
CAPE WHITE BLEND
This dry white blend was delightful, not because I’m obsessed with white blends, okay who am I kidding. I am obsessed. The aromas offer layered elements of each blend. The bouquet is driven by passion fruit and honeycomb with a beautiful floral finish.
Blend Consist of 38% Chenin Blanc 32% Viognier 15% Grenache Blanc15% Sauvignon Blanc
The Badger & Mountain philosophy is that of Passion, patience and pride that drives the energy behind the label.
