The Fledge & Co.

Jikken Bareru Sauvignon Blanc 2022

Western Cape, South Africa

100% Sauvignon Blanc | 13% ABV


Jikken Bareru is The Fledge & Company's experimental series of wines, which allows them to push boundaries a bit further in terms of winemaking techniques. All wines are limited, often to only a few barrels. So definitely worth seeking out! This is an expressive Sauvignon Blanc with one foot in the Old World and one foot in the New, for sauvignon lovers that love of whiff of exoticism.

Meet the winemakers, Margaux Nel & Leon Coetzee.
" The Fledge & Co. is a proudly South African "vine to wine' project, whereby we are fortunate to source fruit from over 50 vineyards spread across the length & breadth of the Cape winelands to showcase the world our truly special vineyards & passion of the workers and farmers who tend the vines rooted in ancient African soils . Our guiding tenets are "the right grape, in the right place" and working Old Skool in the cellar allowing the vintage, variety and site to shine. We aim to craft wines which can be enjoyed amongst friends & family around the kitchen table to bring much merriment & enliven cuisine. "Terroir by truck" might be the most apt description of the project with us travelling 20 000km plus during vintage to source the fruit & thankfully all our activities are offset by Spekbome (Portulacaria afra) on conservancy land owned by our family."

The Fledge & Company is what happens when two folk don’t quite enjoy the status quo, when it’s your nature to go against the grain, when you need to forge a path mostly in the unknown, eschewing common place convention and taking that first defiant flight from the nest.

Hand crafting old school wines of integrity, unfaltering quality, defying perceptions of origin and being guided solely by the vine to showcase our passion – these are The Fledge & Co.’s reasons for being. Wines whispering of their origin; wines benefitting from careful cellaring; wines that are best decanted & accompanied in good cheer with fine fare – that’s our unwavering goal.

With these tenets, a penchant for the unconventional, the pursuit of the fluid dynamic, we set about labouring away in the vineyards across the Cape of Good Hope to craft with care a nest of fledglings.

To life, love & wine!
