    The Fledge & Company Vagabond Cape White Blend 2017

    R 200.00

    Prudentia Sine Vino – an independently minded wine. This multi-varietal, multiregional, “old skool” barrel fermented & matured Cape white blend offers you a "glimpse of the cape". From 14 Vineyards & 23 Barrels comes this 54% Steen (Chenin Blanc), 18% Chardonnay, 12% Grenache Blanc, 8% Verdelho, 4% Viognier & 4% Roussanne. Truly, an endeavour to showcase the diversity of the Cape in a single glass.

    What can you expect?

    A most expressive vintage – a mélange of orange blossom, ripe cling peach, yellow, orange & green citrus, pineapple, hay, flirtations of Rooibos, almond meal & white spice abound on the bouquet.  The palate is generous yet a tad unyielding & tightly wound with a satisfyingly lengthy.

    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. Store for 5 years plus.
