Blaauwklippen’s glorious mistake! Imagine using Zinfandel grapes, a variety from Italy (Primativo) better known in California, and Malbec, a French variety, better known in Argentina… Then imagine your assistant winemaker accidentally pouring an eight year old pot-stilled Brandy into your glass of Zinfandel!!!
