Winemaker's Notes:

The wine has a deep, green-gold color. On the nose, it is packed with blossom, orange peel, and peach notes with the slightest hint of vanilla. The palate is rich and full with peach, tropical fruit, and a firm acidity.

The Fleur du Cap wines are made in a contemporary style from grapes meticulously selected from superior vineyards in the Cape Coastal region, which capture and reflect the highly sought-after qualities of each varietal and specific terroir. Leading the way, this new generation of wines is crafted in compliance with universal guidelines to ensure environmentally friendly winemaking practices

My Notes:

About Fleur du Cap:

One of South Africa's premier and best-known labels, Fleur du Cap, is a member of the Distell group.  The Fleur du Cap wines are made from grapes meticulously selected from superior vineyard blocks in the Cape Coastal region and are made in a contemporary style which captures and reflects the highly sought-after qualities of varietal character and terroir.   Leading the way, this new generation of wines is crafted in compliance with universal guidelines to ensure environmentally friendly winemaking practices.

Winemakers Cobus Gerber, Coenie Snyman and Bennie Liebenberg strive to make well-versed wines that reflect minimal intervention in the cellar. Great skill, unwavering dedication and participative team work lies behind the success of the Fleur du Cap wines. Making wine "the way Mother Nature intended" requires greater care from the winemaking team as each step of the intricate winemaking process has to be gently and sensitively handled to produce wines that express their terroir and varietal character.
