Paserene is a small family operated winery owned by Martin Smith and Ndabe Mareda with the sole purpose of producing highest-end luxury wines. Great care was given to ensure that the wines produced, and artwork on the labels, are truly authentic to ensure its “sense of place and people” and a lasting legacy for many years to come. The name Paserene comes from the latin word Passeriformes, the order of "traveling and free" birds containing swifts and swallows.
 
Tasting Notes:
 
Finally… the Union was a long time coming, but to find the right terroir for this specific style of wine took a lot of effort and thoughtful planning. The Union reveals a deep red to black colour with a vibrant and energetic hue. It offers a brooding bouquet of pencil lead, truffle, fruitcake and violets. A very expressive and multidimensional nose further reveals aromas of sage, raspberry, red cherry preserve, cola and iodine. Full-bodied and dense, yet incredibly light on its feet. Seamless tannins and a slightly lifted acid
structure gives great length and tension to the wine. The Union displays a fantastically youthful and pure – almost innocent – character. A maiden vintage that's set for an exciting future.
