Oumuamua Phenomena

Interview with Harvard’s Dr. Abraham “Avi” Loeb on Event Horizon’s youtube channel with John Michael Godier
New Yorker article with Harvard’s Astrophysicist Avi Loeb for background
On October 19, 2017, astronomers at the University of Hawaii spotted a strange object travelling through our solar system, which they later described as “a red and extremely elongated asteroid.” It was the first interstellar object to be detected within our solar system; the scientists named it ‘Oumuamua, the Hawaiian word for a scout or messenger. The following October, Avi Loeb, the chair of Harvard’s astronomy department, co-wrote a paper (with a Harvard postdoctoral fellow, Shmuel Bialy) that examined ‘Oumuamua’s “peculiar acceleration” and suggested that the object “may be a fully operational probe sent intentionally to Earth’s vicinity by an alien civilization.” Loeb has long been interested in the search for extraterrestrial life, and he recently made further headlines by suggesting that we might communicate with the civilization that sent the probe. “If these beings are peaceful, we could learn a lot from them,” he told Der Spiegel.

Weekend Wine 19 January 2019

"The Soldaat vineyard is located on decomposed granite soils at 805 metres, but this is no light, ethereal rendition of the grape. Grippy and sappy, with 85% whole bunches, no wood, but plenty of tannin and dark fruit. Needs Time." - Tim Atkin, South African Special Report 2018
SOLD OUT – New release July 2019
Region: Olifantsrivier

The 2017 vintage in the Olifantsrivier region was also a challenge, but the advantage is the altitude at which this vineyard grows which brings a bit of a reduction of moisture stress. This vintage is an exhibition of bright red fruit like almost under-ripe cherries and strawberry flavours with even aspects of plums picked early. The tannins are softer and more integrated at this early stage in comparison to those of other years and the wine is extremely approachable – all indications are that it will vaporize out of cellars from the word go.

crafting top quality Grenache wines from countries such as France, Spain, Australia and the
United States.
