Mount Abora, as created by English romantic poet Samuel Taylor Coleridge in his famous poem Kubla Khan, is a mythical place of the imagination. Creation is impossible without a clear vision of what is to manifest. Creativity in winemaking is about imagining a texture, a taste, a feel and then actively setting out to achieve the vision.
Koggelbos is an oxidative style wine made from three parcels of low-yielding Swartland vines, aged between 36 and 46 years old: Winemaker Johan Meyer transforms the grapes from these gnarled, dry land bush vines into an authentic and individualistic expression of grape and place. The grapes were pressed as whole bunches and fermented naturally in older 300 and 500 litres French oak barrels. The wine was kept on the lees for four months and stirred regularly to enhance the mouth feel and foster a sustained palate experience.
The wine matured for another eight months in the same barrels before bottling. The wine is unfiltered and sediment may occur. Decant and let it breath a while, as the style of the wine dictates patients and a Zen approach to enjoyment.
