Three Men in a Tub

The three men in the Tub are Kevin, Jacques and Raymond as they say, “what goes on in the tub stays in the Tub.”

And the Duck is not quacking!!

The old world meets new in this trio of classic varieties. A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Mourvèdre sourced from the coastal region of the South African Winelands seamlessly blends to create this playful blend called Three Men in a Tub with a Rubber Duck.

Best paired with Tubthumping by Chumbawamba

A blend dominated by Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, with a touch of Mourvedre for complexity. This wine ferments spontaneously with wild yeasts and following this is then transferred to barrel for 16 months to mature. A fruit driven wine which is rich and peppery on the nose. The palate is beautifully
balanced with sweet cherry, plum, pepper and liquorice. Extended oak age adds to the structure, softening the tannins, the finish is long with a spicy note.

They call themselves ‘Rebels of the Vine’ and are pushing the boundaries of a traditional industry and having fun with their wines as seen by their labels. Based in the quaint village of Franschhoek, Kevin, Jacques and Raymond came together to combine their diverse skills and creativity to make great wine. They took inspiration from their surnames to become the Black Elephant Vintners – Swart and Ndlovu become Black Elephant and Jacques is the Vintner! Their wines are inspired by good tunes and they firmly believe that music and wine make the best pairing – far from traditional and very Rock ‘n’ Roll!

Franschhoek is a broad vineyard lined valley in the southeast corner of Paarl, within the western cape. The vineyards are protected from oceanic influences by the mountains to the south, which also trap southerly cooling winds, lengthening the growing season. Grapes have been planted in the region since the late
1600s, when exiled French Huguenots brought over their viticulture to South Africa and settled in this area, Franschhoek which translates in Dutch to French corner still retains heavy French influence today, evident through architecture and names of vineyards. The hot climate here typically shows full bodied,
complex reds and rich, fruit driven whites, there is also the association of Cap Classique production to this region. Culturally the area is known for its hospitality, music and variety of festivals.
