    The Fledge & Company Vagabond Cape White Blend 2019

    R 200.00

    This multi-varietal, multiregional, “old skool” barrel fermented & matured Cape white blend offers you a "glimpse of the cape". From 19 Vineyards & 23 Barrels comes this 39% Steen (Chenin Blanc), 27% Chardonnay, 12.5% Grenache Blanc, 6% Viognier, 5% Verdelho, 5% Roussanne & 2% Blanc Fumé. Truly, an endeavour to showcase the diversity of the Cape in a single glass.

    What can you expect?

    A ‘slow burner” shy yet complex wine – a mélange of orange blossom, cling peach, tangerine & green citrus, green pineapple, hay, flirtations of gun flint, Rooibos, honied almonds & white spice abound on the bouquet. The palate is taut ‘n tad unyielding with a satisfying lengthy finish & zippy citrus rind acidity.

    Food pairing?

    A perfect partner for roast fowl, duck or pork, traditional Cape Malay & mild Cantonese cuisine, firm fine fromage & charcuterie or enjoy as an aperitif.

    Serving suggestion:

    Serve lightly chilled & best decanted. Vagabond most definitely benefits from careful cellaring, as it allows the it slowly gain complexity, nuance & generosity. You can Cellar this wine for 8 years plus.
