Grapes are sourced from vines growing on bokkeveld shale in Elgin. The cool climate produces grapes with bright fruit flavours and good acidity. At the winery the grapes are cooled to 1°C before pressing. The juice is transferred without settling to oak barrels (30% first fill,) for alcoholic (1 month,) and malolactic (12 months,) fermentations. The wine spends a total of 16 months in the barrels, with regular rolling of each barrel to enhance the lees contact. The wine is bottled without filtration and cellared for a further 12 months before release.
The attractive label art represents the beauty of Mother Nature and was drawn by local artist Carmen Ziervogel. The labels are produced on an old hand operated Heidelberg press.
Paserene is a small, family operated winery owned by Martin Smith, the winemaker and businessman Ndabe Mareda. The winery name is derived from the Latin Passeriformes: the family of birds that includes swifts and swallows. These birds migrate between Africa and Europe. A route that is often traveled by young winemakers as they gain experience in different countries.
