There is no recipe for NATIVO blends, each vintage delivering a different encépagement based on the various cultivars’ character and quality of that year.
‘Although we strive to produce innovative wines, we are bound by what the environment actually provides. Through an organic approach to viticulture and minimal intervention during the winemaking process, we hope to reflect that strong sense of “belonging” in our wines. The name NATIVO pays homage to that.'
Pure and unpretentious these wines are excellent food wines with a distinctive spicy element that is particularly adept at moulding itself around classical cuisine spiced up fusion influences.
There are only two wines, a Red Blend and a White Blend.

The Red Blend is based on Shiraz, with varying amounts of Mourvèdre, Grenache, Pinotage, as well as some Tempranillo and Viognier. Generally dense and robust, they provide a mouthful of dark fruit, soft tannins and a signature mineral character.
The White Blend is an elegant medium bodied Viognier and Chenin Blanc, with fragrant aromas, balanced oak fruit integration and a long fresh finish. From 2013,  Rousanne and Grenache Blanc will find their way into this blend.
