Primordial Soup – At the Western Cape’s Pinnacle Point, evidence remains in maritime caves of our earliest known ancestors – a primitive culture that combed the beaches and fished in the same rock-pools from whence they came.
The aim with Primordial Soup is to introduce South African wine in its most accessible form, red and white familial twins made up of multiple classical cultivars, named without variety. The design inspiration is from the illustration’s of Ernst Haeckel, German naturalist, who identified then drew some of the simplest forms of life on Earth. We then use these to relate to Darwinism and the subject of Creation and evolution as a whole. It’s the story of everything.
The Producer – MADE BY BOUTINOT
This cultured concoction is derived from the Western Cape’s classical cultivars, blended to represent nature’s selection and packed with juicy life. An artful blend of classic South African varieties blended by our winemakers Marinda & Ryno. Viognier lends flesh to the skeletal Chenin Blanc and Pinot Grigio, whereas our red is the very blood of the earth.
What does it go with:
Anything and everything…Such a versatile wine. Its freshness, flavours and fabulous aromas match anything from a sensational summer salad to a fist of freshly shucked oysters.
