Miss Lucy is one of the seven nicknames given to the Red Stumpnose by the fisherman of the Southern Cape. Created as an ode to the bounty of the sea, Miss Lucy is a carefully considered blend that has been over 10 years in the making. Vines were specifically planted, and in a game of trial and error several were uprooted and other replanted in its place. Prior to Miss Lucy’s eventual release, came a four year period of experimentation with regards to the blending components and different barrel regimes.
What results is a unique blend bursting with citrus pamplemousse flavours and an ample mouth feel.
The perfect partner to a seafood feast, only a salty breeze and a sunny day can improve what is already a perfect match.
