Namibia – the next wine country?

A Britsh born business man has planted a vineyard in Namibia, just on the border to the desert. Allan Walkden-Davis so far only makes 3500 bottles, made from Shiraz and Merlot. Five sources contributes to make the vineyard fertile although it is virtually in the desert. Namib Red 2004 is described as “absolutely stunning, amazing wine, with nice dark berries, slight acidity, plums, and just a little bit of that peppery Italian leather” by the South African wine consultant Micael Oliver. Stunning, yes we can believe that.
