    Born from a passion for Mediterranean grape varieties and old-vine fruit, Momento is the solo project from dynamic, young South African winemaker Marelise Niemann. Her fascination with Grenache was sparked while in Priorat, Spain and on her return to South Africa, she began seeking out parcels of old vine Grenache to make her own elegant and soulful wines. In 2023 she was named Tim Atkin’s ‘Young Winemaker of the Year’ in recognition of her exceptional work.  Fruit for Momento is sourced from vineyard parcels in the Swartland and Bot River. The Swartland’s low rainfall, combined with granite soils, produces wines with richness and depth.  Marelise’s winemaking is minimalist, utilising indigenous yeast barrel fermentations, old basket presses, manual punch downs and maturation in old French oak to preserve a profound purity of fruit.

    The Momento Grenache Gris is sourced from the only vineyard of this variety in South Africa, its traditional home being the south of France.  Copper-skinned it displays a waxy mouthfeel, exotic fruit, and a savoury, herbal edge.

    Wine Style Meter

     

    Our ongoing quest at Winecroft is to do away with winespeak so we can talk clearly about the wine. One of the ways we achieve this is by using our Wine Style Meter, a key tool to match you with new wines we believe that you’ll love. We do this by matching the style of each wine on our list to your personal taste profile, which is established with the science-based Winecroft taste test and will evolve as you taste new wines.

    The needle on the Wine Style Meter points you towards the following wines:

    Once you settle the needle on the style of wine you like, our Wine Style Meter is a quick, clear and simple way of gauging whether you’ll like a particular wine from our wonderful winelist.
