This boutique winery was founded in 1989 by renowned Burgundian winemaker, Paul Bouchard and South African Pinot Noir pioneer, Peter Finlayson. Situated in the cool climate Hemel-en-Aarde Valley in Walker Bay, 110 kilometres south east of Cape Town, the 22 hectares of vineyard are laid out according to Burgundian principles and more than half are planted with Pinot Noir. The vineyards have soils of a distinctive clay-rich Bokkeveld shale (gravel and shale) and the nearby, cold ocean provides a cooling effect on the land.

Tasting Notes

Most noticeable is the fountain of bright tropical aromas which greets one at first contact. This is followed by the gorgeous round tropical fruit bowl flavour complexity pattern. Almost a Persian carpet mix of taste compliments.

Press Review

''Unique South African white blend that works surprisingly well. Riesling is the dominant variety in this heady mix of a superbly refreshing wine. Excellent texture and nice mineral notes. Mouth-watering acidity cuts through tropical fruit flavours - in this case pineapple.
The palate also offers up some saline notes, on the way to a long and satisfying finish.
Enjoy with: White fish and shellfish.''

''Fresh and vibrant white from the Western Cape, led by Riesling with viognier backing vocals. A superb, straight forward South African''
