Finally, the “Daredevils’ Drums Blushes Inverse”, a pure Blanc de Noir from Pinotage, seems to be a bit out of the ordinary. The secret of how Tariro vinifies the must here in a very natural way and without the usual use of activated charcoal, which inevitably would filter out more than just the colorants, should any interested party inquire on-site at Springfontein from “Mister T.” or from one of his wine ambassadors or ambassadresses.
In addition, we often divert small batches, albeit in almost homeopathic quantities, from those wines that are generally intended for cuvée making with Pinotage. The few brothers and sisters of the Blushes Inverse, which are bottled separately in this way and are single varietal wines themselves, also come under the umbrella of the “Daredevils’ Drums”. And in addition to this, made by Tariro depending on a vintage’s specific circumstances, you may find the one or the other “T.M. Special Reserve” which, however, is mainly reserved for enjoyment “on the spot” – on Springfontein Estate itself.
