FAT bastard, the well-loved, delicious, full-bodied range of wines, has a brand-new FAT bastard in the POD, the FAT bastard Golden Reserve 2017 Bordeaux-style red blend, Where Bold Meets Gold.


WHY FAT bastard? When Thierry and Guy first created these delicious wines, they did it with gusto. They poured their hearts, souls and great dollops of generosity into every bottle. In fact, it was a great big discovery (in winemaking terms) that led to the name 'FAT bastard.' It comes from having left the wine on the lees for a lot longer than usual, which allowed it to develop more fully and completely. And when tasted, there was simply no other way to describe it other than: "Well, now that's a FAT bastard!"

This tradition of creating full-bodied wines to be enjoyed with bellyfuls of laughs and good-natured cheer continues today. Whether it's a celebration, a kuier or a "COME ON OVER!", there's a FAT bastard (or two) waiting to be opened. “Much like a glass of FAT bastard wine, life should be filled to the brim and enjoyed in large, delicious gulps”. This is the voice of Mr. b. He’s gold, he’s grand and he lives life at the big end of large! He’s the grand-daddy of FAT bastard wines, loving them with great gusto.

THE GOLDEN RESERVE 2017

The Cabernet Sauvignon / Merlot blend was made from specially selected grapes with the aim to produce ripe-flavoured and silky textured wine.

Winemaking: All fruit was gently pressed to retain fruit aromas and character. The wine was aged in small oak barrels to add greater weight and complexity.

Tasting notes: The wine has an intense, dark ruby colour. Luxurious aromas and flavours of dark berry fruit and plum entice the senses. The palate of the wine is rich and full, with a silky and lasting finish.

Suggested food pairing: Roast lamb, oxtail or rib-eye steak

Retail price: The FAT bastard Golden Reserve 2017 is widely available nationally and retails between R110 and R120.
