One thing I have to say is that the branding, name and style of wine definitely falls into a very innovative category for the South African market. A Shiraz with a slightly higher Rs (around 7g/L) although it doesn’t come across as too sweet. Matured in older French and American oak just rounds the wine off very nicely. I think it is a wine you can put in the fridge for a little while and enjoy chilled.
Saxenburg explains it like this:
Bertie as you all should know is Saxenburg’s
resident beau. Better known as the drunken
fowl he surfaces quietly, like a night owl.
And when no one is there for the securing, he
consumes the wine that in the barrels is maturing.
Shiraz is his favourite one, and brings a wiggle to
his wee bum. With his rich spicy and plummy flavors.
He shouldn’t be the only one to savour!
The packaging is fun and light hearted with a very affordable price to come with it of R65 at Cellar Door. We might see some other type of Drunken Fowls this coming season J
