Wine information
The Fledge & Co. is the love child of husband and wife team, Margaux Nel and Leon Coetzee. These partners in crime obtain grapes from all over the Cape to produce unique, and in some cases, one-off blends. They go against the tide and push boundaries to produce wine with soul and character. And each vintage, they seem to go from strength-to-strength. This is a Chenin (or Steen in local lingo) for the adventurous, produced from grapes that are from two vineyards that are 50 and 35 years old, respectively. For this wine they say, "the sum is greater than its parts". It spends 3 months on fine lees (the yeasts that remain after fermentation). This gives added complexity and creaminess taking over from the sumptuous citrus, yellow plum and pear flavours.

Robin says "Jikken Bareru is The Fledge & Company's experimental series of wines, which allows them to push boundaries a bit further in terms of winemaking techniques. All wines are limited, often to only a few barrels. So definitely worth seeking out!"

Such a cool story

I read up a bit on these guys after trying the wine, and it is such a cool story. This wine is delicious and was great with the seafood we had for dinner. For something quite boutique, and well made I thought the price was excellent.
