    This Verdelho is symbolic of the one ultimate philosophy of our winemaking team: To create an elegant, ever graceful and rewarding wine. Verdelho is a white grape variety grown throughout Portugal, and also gives its name to one of the four main types of Madeira wine. Verdelho has traditionally been used to make fortified wines. The inspiration to plant this variety in Stellenbosch came from its suitability to warmer climates and the success in the Douro as well as the Swan Valley (Australia) where it has been successfully made as a table wine.

    What can you expect?

    This is an exceptional wine revealing peach and apricot aromas with flinty, floral and nutty nuances. Its zesty nature makes this a complex wine showing raw almond and dried fruit on the palate. Its well integrated acid line contributes to the refreshing, lingering finish. 

    Food pairing?

    Excellent served with spicy South African cuisine.

    Aging potential?

    The wine can be enjoyed now, but will benefit from bottle aging for three to five years
