What’s in the name
Dave Sobel’s book, Longitude: The True Story of a Lone Genius Who Solved the Greatest Scientific Problem of His Time recounts the section of John Harrison, an 18th century clockmaker, accountable for producing the first chronometer satisfactorily precise to be used to control a ship’s longitude at sea.
Only 1,200 bottles are made each year of this exceptional wine; only a few rows from the Writer’s Block Pinotage vineyard some 700 meters above sea level provide the grapes. Here, on steep slopes on decomposed granitic soils, a rigorous green harvest is employed so low yields of perfectly ripe grapes can be harvested. Fermentation takes place in new oak barrels, with their heads removed, and the cap is punched down by hand every four hours to extract color and tannins. The wine is matured in small barrels for many months prior to final blending. Incredibly vibrant and textural, with a deliciously wide fruit character which trails onto a long finish, kept moving by the balancing acidity.
