Keep it Loose, Equinox Wines, Alternative white 2021, 13%, 750ml


      Keep It Loose comes from a name I wrote on one of my barrels during harvest and serves as a reminder not to take life too seriously sometimes but to have fun and just Keep It Loose. 

      Made from the varietal Colombar as base wine it is blended with Grenache Blanc and forms part of the Pool Wine Series. These wines are fun and produced in a fresher style with light extraction of flavours and good acidity. 

      Keep It Loose was made alternatively which means that no additives, except a small amount of sulphur, was added and a very minimalistic approach was followed when making the wine. The Colombar vineyard is a 35 year old, unirrigated bushvines from the Riebeek Kasteel area in Swartland. 

      The Grenache Blanc comes from the more sandy soils of the Paardeberg.

      During harvest the grapes were hand picked early for freshness, natural acidity and lower alcohol levels and the wines were aged in small oak barrel before bottled in July 2021
