This Viognier is renowned as being delicious and true to the variety.
A floral perfume dances from the bottle - honeysuckle, jasmine, white peach, and apricot. These flavours will pair just as well with cheeses as with Asian flavours, creamy sauces, and white fish.
Each flavour is balanced perfectly with the others, resulting in a wine with impressive poise.
Enjoy a glimpse of South Africa’s wine-growing regions, nestled at the bottom tip of the continent. Grapes are exposed to winter snow and hot, African sun.
This Viognier is a reflection of Samantha's obsession with how the special soil, climate and a mysterious sense of place come together to produce an extraordinary wine that tells you its story. The vines are grown on rose-quartz soils in Elgin, which is a cool, high altitude plateau. The region offers a lengthened ripening period which brings the grapes late into season- often three to four weeks later than traditional wine growing areas in South Africa. This provides the opportunity to develop deep complexity and concentration.
The grapes were picked and whole bunch pressed, slowly extracting the juice at a rate of 550 litres per tonne. The juice was settled for 48 hours and was racked into a combination of seasoned 225 litre Burgundian barrels and three new 500 litre oak casks, for barrel fermentation and maturation. The wine was left on the lees for six months, with regular "bâtonnage" (lees stirring) for the first two months.
This expressive Viognier seduces you with the beautiful perfume of honeysuckle and orange blossom and a textured palate of apricot, kiwi and pineapple. A sensual and exotic experience.
Asian inspired cuisine; lamb tagines with apricots; or rich shellfish dishes such as seared scallops or grilled lobster.
