Tania and Vincent Carême Terre Brûlée 2018

Swartland, Coastal Region, South AfricaI have not had the opportunity to visit this property, but I want to after tasting this wine again. Vincent Carême is a well-known Loire producer situated in Vouvray at Domaine Vincent Carême. Even more interesting, his wife is South African, where the couple farm just over 4 hectares of vineyard located on Swartland granite. Terre Brûlée is the winery's flagship label, and it delivers on all levels. The vines are 40 years old and sit at 625 meters of elevation, explaining the elegance and freshness on the nose. It a balanced 13 percent alcohol, allowing the fruit to shine through with its bony mineral, wild citrus, quince and green peach. Drink or hold, this wine is going nowhere for a decade.Tasted: 30 May 2020Tasted by: Prices: BC 21.99 BCLS Exclusive Producer: Vincent CarêmeDistributors: Authentic Wine and Spirits Merchants
