“If music is the wine that fills the cup of silence, The Vinyl Collection is the wine that fill your cup with music.”
Rascallion’s Adam Sleet isn’t one to dwell on talk of technical wine jargon and his self proclaimed mission is to change the conversation of wine.
He prefers to let the wines speak for themselves and his 33 1/3 RPM and 45 RPM blends are crafted to amplify the composition of their parts whilst having a depth and richness to them - rather like listening to a nostalgic record on vinyl.
The 2020 release is an aromatic and textured blend, comprising 40% Chenin Blanc, 30% Grenache Blanc, 20% Viognier and 10% Chardonnay.
The grapes come from low yielding, exceptional vineyards in the high lying Piekenierskloof region in the Citrusdal Mountains.
