Painted Wolf Solo Roussanne 2022 75cl
This wine is named for Solo of the Serengeti, the Painted Wolf (African wild dog) pup who inspired Hugo van Lawick and Jane Goodall’s ground- breaking 1978 film and book about the species. The name Solo was also given to a lone wild dog at Mombo in the Okavango about whom a fascinating documentary was made.
Roussanne, native to the warmer regions of France’s Rhône valley, is a relative newcomer and still very rare in South Africa. There are fewer than 10 South African producers and we are proud to be ranked among the top.
Bursting with stone fruit aromas, this is a wonderfully complex wine with a slight waxiness combined with vanilla and fresh minerality on the palate.
