The story of this wine
The den wines are social wines to be enjoyed with friends and family. These wines are named for the den, the heart of all African wild dog communities. Flavour-packed, soft and juicy comfort wines for every day drinking.
Jenny Metelerkamp produced a fine Painted Wolf ink drawing for the label.
A bright fruity wine with strawberry, cherry and cranberry flavours, a gentle underlying minerality and a fresh lingering finish.
Bright fresh yummy rose is such a good lunch time wine and goes with lots of different dishes. Serve with sushi, roasted vegetable salad, smoked chicken breast and of course as picnic wine when you have a lot of different goodies.
Pinotage grapes were sourced from a number of blocks of older vines in Paarl.
I set out to make the most delicious and compelling dry rosé possible from Pinotage. The grapes were hand picked into small baskets and taken to the cellar where the grapes were destalked, gently crushed, and cooled before being left on skins for roughly 6 hours. The wine cold fermented in tank.
This wine is delicious as a young wine and may bottle age for a few years.
A social wine to be enjoyed with friends and family. Named for THE DEN, the heart of the Wild Dog community. Flavour packed, soft and juicy comfort wines for every day drinking.
A pack of Wild Dogs and a pack of cyclists share the same goal. Whether it is food for the pack or the end of a long road, what remains is the bond between pack members and the ability to unwind and enjoy the company. Company made all the more enjoyable by sharing a good wine, a love of wide open spaces and the Wild Dogs who roam them.
High quality wines carefully hand crafted from our 3 Pack members’ grapes including a number of single vineyard wines named after the vineyard owners.
Named after Lycaon Pictus, the scientific name for Painted Wolf. Each edition of this deluxe Rhone style blend is as rare and beautiful as the Wild Dogs we support. Each year we choose a painting from one of our pack artists to feature on the label and each year we match estimated Wild Dog numbers with the number of bottle we produce. In most cases, the original painting is sold at auction with proceeds donated to wild dog research and conservation.
