Rikus’s passion, experience and knowledge have made him a winemaker to watch in a country that is establishing itself as a premium wine producer. His award-winning wines are sourced from the best selected grapes the Western Cape has to offer.
The ‘Bizoe’ range is derived from the French word ‘Bisous’, meaning little kiss while ‘Genant’ is named after his son and means ‘having the same name as somebody else’.
Sourced from Darling and Wellington the grapes go through a cold maceration process to extract delicate fruit flavours. The result is a full-bodied and fruity blend of Shiraz, Grenache and Mourvèdre with hints of spice and some violet on the finish.
Lovely dark berry spice, shaved chocolate, violets, and sweet turned earth, with a sweet-sour intensity and mouth-watering depth.- 91 pts Decanter World Wine Awards
