Marras Was Jou Hanepoot
Marras Was Jou Hanepoot is a dry white made from Muscat d'Alexandrie grapes (locally known as Hanepoot), which just so happens to be a baboon’s favourite. A baboon will stroll right past vineyards full of the best Sauvignon Blanc, Chenin Blanc, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Shiraz grapes and put their body on the line to steal some Hanepoot from a farmer’s kitchen. That’s some serious dedication. We’re also yet to meet a pun we didn’t love on sight, so Was Jou Hanepoot is a little reminder that we all need to keep washing our hands to curb the spread of COVID-19 within our communities. You’ll also notice we refer to this vintage as a ‘Kop Sanitizer’ on the back label because sometimes a glass of wine is all you need to keep things in perspective when the pressure is on.
