Strange Bru White is made from Fernao Pires and Grenache Blanc, which gives a deliciously tangy, bright and fleshy wine with aromas of peach and a walk in the mountains. There are flavours of apricot and nectarine, and it has a dry, refreshing and zesty finish. A lovely wine from a rare and unusual grape variety!

Of the last blocks of Fernao left in the Cape this is the oldest at 30-something years old. Originally grown for yield and brandy this Portuguese immigrant certainly found its feet but fell out of favour. Which is where we all come in.. Before we lose ‘em let’s use ‘em. Naturally abundant in gently aromatic, fleshy fruit 2018 in particular focussed the fruit in this Breede River Valley vineyard. All the rock-stars are sniffing around this block now which is good for its future but here is an accessibly-priced expression of the loveliness of the Found before it gets Lost. In Portugal the variety is also known as Maria Gomes, which is strangely sexy in itself. Best drunk in its youth this wine is not for later, it’s definitely Fernao.

A circus tent of the Cape’s stranger grapes and blends.We will champion the unfashionable, experiment with the known and express the found before it gets lost. Mistakes are likely, fun certain.Welcome to Strange Kompanjie, a Kultivar Club for the Underdog.
