I had three extremely successful tastings with the taste bottles of [Stripey Horse] that Dirk brought. Everyone raved about the quality of the wine as well as the taste. Here is a copy of the menu that we debuted the Magnum to a prestigious Investment bank and law firm:
[Stripey Horse] amongst the world greats!
You can see that [Stripey Horse}] was up against some of the worlds greatest wines and it came out on top. I could not have been more pleased. The wine will be on the water traveling to the states over a three week period so it looks like the bottles will be in NYC by the beginning of November.
If anyone would like further information about 2008 [Stripey Horse] please feel free to email me at email@example.com.There are a number of other exciting projects in the works so thanks for follow along.As always,Cheers![Stripey Horse] 2008
Hand harvested grapes from high lying environmentally friendly grown Cabernet Franc, Merlot & Cabernet Sauvignon vineyards, in Stellenbosch, were used to produce this Bordeaux style blend. Bottling was done by hand using customised equipment and natural gravitational flow, therefore eliminating the use of electrical equipment and we used harvested rain water to clean all equipment. This forms part of my EARTH FRIENDLY EARTH CONSCIOUS approach to winemaking and ensuring a small carbon footprint.
