La Vierge Jezebelle Chardonnay 2011. Presumably some relation to poor Jezebel, Hebrew princess and great aunt of the queen of Carthage who died by 'defenestration'. This wine royalty has tongue tingling lime and acacia aromas and balanced acidity. We can only advise you avoid milling about by open windows after drinking.
La Vierge Satyricon 2010. literally defined as a latin work of fiction, devised with mixture of poetry and prose. With Barbera, Sangiovese and Nebbiolo components, this draws a nice parallel - not to mention its somewhat poetical musings of tea leaf, red fruit and tarry spice...
La Vierge Original Sin 2011. As La Vierge put it, in Hemel-en-Aarde Chardonnay is all the rage. They “sinned” by planting Sauvignon Blanc: the forbidden fruit “in the knowledge that it would bring us infinite knowledge about this cool climate variety”. Tropical fruit aromatics with some minerality, on the palate tropical melon with a hint of lemongrass and a mineral finish. All in all, zesty and bright.
La Vierge Noir 2010. This rather dark looking bottle doesn't quite convey the elegance of this wine. Earthy and savoury aromas supported by red fruit notes give this delicate wine a certain sophistication. A complex wine with a mixed message - as the 'virginal' lady on the label suggests.
La Vierge Last Temptation Riesling 2011. With a name like this, you may not dare to try it. If you do, expect chiselled melon and terpene perfume. Grapes for this highly textured wine are harvested in the early morning and subsequently crushed with dry ice for maximum flavour and aroma.
