BLANKBottle Kortpad Kaaptoe 2019

In stock
Kortpad Kaaptoe means quickest route in Afrikaans. This wine is named for just that, following on from an occasion when Pieter had to get back to Cape Town in a great hurry. He was told to drive past the Carignan and Shiraz vines, and then turn left after the Fernao Pires. Pieter, firstly astounded not to have heard of this grape, and then having to drive past said weird vines that he couldn't stop at was determined to go back to visit this old vineyard in the Swartland. The wine is therefore named for the shortcut he took back to Cape, that occasion discovering this grape and this amazing vineyard that he had never heard of!

The story of Kortpad Kaaptoe:

In August 2011, on a farm somewhere between Darling and Hopefield on the West Coast of South Africa, I was visiting a block of grapes, Carignan. I received a SMS from someone who needed me to be in Cape Town within the next hour. Being in the middle of nowhere, I asked the farmer the quickest way to Cape Town. In Afrikaans (one of the 11 official languages of South Africa), the "kortpad Kaaptoe". He said that I needed to drive towards the Carignan, past the Shiraz and Fernao Pirez....

"The FERNAO WHAT???", I asked him? "Fernao Pirez" he replied. Bush vines, unirrigated, planted by his grandfather 38 years before. So, on my shortest way to Cape Town (the "kortpad kaaptoe"), I found Fernao Pirez. A varietal I had never tasted wine of and something I never knew existed in South Africa. And that brings me to something so very important to me.

I love interesting, true stories. So if I find a story like this, a bit of family history stumbled upon on my shortest route to Cape Town, I want to tell that story, disguised as a bottle of wine. So it is not ONLY about the wine. In life everything needs to be seen in context. If you take things out of context, wine becomes one dimensional and boring in a way.

The label: Linocut of AC/DC inspired font. Printed on real organics paper with as much gold bling as possible. Labels are hand applied with old-style wet glue technique. Please note that the label will slip off the bottle when it gets wet. The label is as natural as the wine inside the bottle.
