This wine will only be produced in extreme years. It is a Stellenbosch/Franschoek blend of super ripe Viognier and Chenin. Not for the faint of heart. It comes in at an alcohol of close to 16%.

Information

It all started in 2011 with one German, the Hinterhofkabuff and a 2010-Stellenbosch-cast-away-in-the-corner red wine called THE BOMB. With a alcohol of 16.24 I thought the wine had no future. Boy was I wrong. My South African clients, the Swiss and the Germans were onto that wine like a pure bred Strand residents onto a green hatchback Ford Sierra. It sold at the speed of lightning. The 2011 went down the same route and I am now contemplating the bottling of a V-powered 2012. Anyhow; Mid 2012 my phone rang and a German accent from Frankfurt said: "Pieter, I need a white bomb"... Pieter: "a white what?????" German voice: "a high octane white wine that is over the top in every aspect of wine, yet balanced". And a year later, here it is: An almost straight Viognier (slight bit of Chenin) from Franschoek, Helshoogte and Blaauwklippen road. It's much like a silver Belville CY registered 1995 Honda ballade, with low profile hancoocks, old man emo shocks, florescent shashi lighting, dropped bucket seats and a knight rider steering wheel. With an alcohol of 15.85 this wine is not for the faint of heart - in perfect balance with everything in over-abundance. The Platter tasting lady said it's like a belly dancer and gave it 4 out of 5, which is in the excellent range. More importantly, its my wife's favourite and everyone knows they are never wrong. So, if you are looking for some high octane stuff...
