Swartland Winery Limited Release Mourvedre 2020

Producer Note

The Swartland Winery is doing something totally new. In a world where most wines are starting to taste exactly the same, this winery is looking to change the game. And it makes sense; Swartland in nothing like most of South Africa's—and the world's—wine producing regions. It is rugged, wild, hot. This winery has managed to capture the essence of their region, without losing the sophistication that discerning buyers have come to expect. Truly unique and just now being given the recognition that it deserves, these wines have been chosen specifically for our buyers, with their preferences and penchant for adventure in mind.

Winery Information

Swartland Winery was established in 1948 near Cape Town, South Africa as a cooperative cellar. It now operates as a full-fledged wine company with its own production and bottling facilities. Wheat and grapes grow by the hectare throughout the region, with Swartland Winery producing from 3,600 hectares of vines from a 22km radius of surrounding farmland. The winery produces about 2 million 9 litre cases of wine a year, and its wines have been winning many awards in the past few years as their international acclaim rises. This region, with its hot, dry weather and bright blue skies, has proven to be an amazing place for growing bush wines. Since the 1990s, more red grape varieties have been planted than ever before, so South African red wine has become a more popular option on the market. Swartland red wine is exemplified in their Winemakers Collection, though they also produce a range of white, sparkling, and fortified wines.

Vineyard Note

For this vineyard, environmental sustainability is just as important as balance of flavors. They select a variety of different wine grapes, raised with as little intervention as possible and amongst cover crops for nutrition, moisture, and protection, to create an expertly blended flavor. Averaging a yield of six tonnes of fruit per hectare, the grapes grown in these vineyards are unsurpassed in quality and reflect the vivacity of their environment.

Tasting Note

This wine with its intense dark colour, has an enticing nose of mocha and chocolate with dark berry flavours, which follow through onto the palate and are complemented by spicy undertones. A soft mouthfeel that lingers on the palate.

Serving Suggestion

This full, rich wine with bright fruit that accompanies rich and creamy pastas or grilled meat dishes.

Grapes - 85% Mourvedre - 15% Syrah

ABV - 14%

Can you explain your shipping charges?

We charge the amount the courier charges us to deliver the wines. In the majority of cases this is £10.00 for a dozen wines. For local delivery we charge £5.00 as we can often do this ourselves, by local we mean Milton Keynes.

Couriers charge by weight and size and a case of wines is both heavy and bulky and so the costs are fairly high. The charges are the same if you are buying 1 bottle or 6 bottles but they change if you go over 6 bottles due the the excess weight and size. Couriers also charge a fee to cover fuel excess and this all goes towards the total cost not to mention the 20% VAT to be added to everything.

Currently if someone orders a dozen wines they are charged £10.00 but if they order 24 bottles the charge is the same!

If you wish to have your wines shipped to other countries the costs are extreemly high and often not worth paying for. The cost for example to ship to the USA for a dozen wines would be £100.00 for the shipping alone! Therefore we have taken the decision not to ship any wines outside of the UK.

 

What is your minimum order?

The minimum order is 1 bottle! I prefer it if people order more and you get better value with the delivery if you do this too!

 

What if I want to send wine as a gift?

No problem, we will send to your preferred address and even include a card free of charge!

We have two kinds of cards a blank one and a Thank you one. However if you want a Valentines one or a birthday card or anyother type of card please let us know. We will write your personal greeting and even include the soppy stuff. We don't charge for the cards as its our way of thanking you for choosing us to send a gift to your loved one. 

 

What about a discount?

I may be able to take a little off the price if you ask nicely and there is a large enough order. Please do not ask for a discount on any orders under 12 bottles.  Email me with your requirements and I will let you know if I can do anything. However the best way to get a discount is to sign up for the newsletter as there is often special offers given away to newsletter subscribers.
