‘This is the second release of Smaug the Magnificent. Like with most great things in life – this wine originated with a really bad experience where the liquor board stopped with sales of the 2011 vintage. Smaug is back and it’s all about showing what age can do to a South African white blend.
I bottled this wine in 2017 and have been ageing it ever since. Not great for cash-flow, but very promising for the wine! The 2017 vintage is just about to start showing it’s true colours. A super cool, nutty, grippy mineral yet fresh 3-year old South African white. Made to age for another 5 to 7 years. A blend of Roussanne, Chenin Blanc, Verdelho and Palomino.’ Pieter Walser, Winemaker
