This Saturday starting 7pm the team at Racines NY will welcome a last minute surprise guest, Mick Craven! Mick, an Aussie landed in South Africa for love and for vine is today crafting with his wife Janine some of the most exciting and highly drinkable wines from Stellenbosch. This region (aka "The City of Oaks", just east of Cape Town, and probably the most famous of SA), is finding a new voice thanks to attentive and careful farming of the "original" varietals that were brought to the country centuries ago (Clairette, Chenin, Cinsault) as well as more subtle interpretations of Syrah and Pinots. With some time spent with Pax Mahle and Scott Schultz, you can bet Mick got a taste for elegant, fresh and savory wines vinified with a light hand in the cellar over extracted fruit bombs, as well as a touch for some layered skin-contact and stem-inclusion variations.
Come and join us to chat with one of the top talents of SA, and taste what the Polkadraai Hills can offer! No reservation needed, just come at the bar! #realwine #vindevigneron #vindevigneronne #clairette #pinotgris #syrah #pinotnoir #chenincheninchenin #stellenbosch
