The Liberator Opposites Attract Episode 32

By Pete's Provisions



The perfect date night wine? We feel sick even suggesting such cliché, but you know it makes sense. Especially if Steak is on the menu. Here we have a big, juicy (Merlot) and earthy wine with some lovely fragrant spice and floral (Syrah) hints.
Geography and convention tell us one should never blend maritime Merlot with continental Syrah. I mean, really… this would never happen in the renowned appellations of France…? In the New World, however, winemakers are not beholden to such tradition or etiquette. Forget about the token addition of Cabernet Franc...


Beyond the periphery of South Africa’s conventional vineyard regions lie great vinous treasures, resigned to anonymity; forgotten, abandoned or just simply undiscovered. it is the mission of Rick, our intrepid Cape Crusader, to seek out and liberate these rare wines, consigning them to the table of the most inquisitive and discerning imbiber. Each episode represents a precious parcel that is both unique and finite.
on his regular jaunts around the Cape, seeing the number of great wines that are resigned to a tragic fate of being blended away or disposed of in bulk confounded Rick. It might be an occasional experimental batch, or possible an interesting off-cut from some proud winemakers latest premium release. Whatever their provenance, it’s Ricks mission as The Liberator to procure these precious vinous orphans and consign them to a better home.
Inevitably, each wine discovered by The Liberator comes with its own story; a tale of its untimely existence. Every release has its testimony recounted, in a bottle and on screen, as a unique and evocative episode.
