The Liberator Episode 19 “The Teeth of the Dog “

South Africa, Western Cape

Rick “The Liberator” discovered this traditional, barrel-fermented Chardonnay at Glen Carlou in September 2018 on one of his reconnaissance missions. The wine had just been bottled and was destined for the cellar’s wine club members, but a change in the farm’s ownership resulted in a strategic rethink. Some might say the wine is more Meursault than Chassagne in style, a great find for white Burgundy lovers”

Producer

Over the past 20 years, Richard Kelley MW has become one of the most respected authorities on South African wine. Between 1995 and 2002, he lived and worked in the Cape, witnessing the renaissance of the post-apartheid wine industry. Throughout this time, he established a healthy rapport with the great and the good of the local wine scene, affording him access to their distinguished cellars. Along the way he started to discover small parcels of wine and engaged some of the finest Cape winemakers in project work with him. He returns to the Cape several times a year on a mission to uncover – and liberate – the hidden gems of the Cape.

Food Match

This wine works well with roast and grilled poultry, it goes well with classic seafood dishes such as Dover Sole, with a butter based sauce, or more simply with a good, dressed crab.
