Winemaker's Notes:

Sleek and rich in color. This elegant unwooded wine offers glimpses tropical fruits. Retaining in revealing mouthful flavors and long soothing aftertaste.
My Notes:

About Star Tree:

Star Tree is situated in the Northern Cape Province of South Africa. This region is also known as the Kalahari, a countryside which is renowned for its breathtaking sunsets, open spaces, and unequalled starscape nights. The vineyards are all located in close proximity to the Orange River, and stretch over a distance of more than 350 kilometers, from Kakamas in the west to Keimoes, Upington, Grootdrink and, finally, Groblershoop Wine Cellars in the north-east.

The native Star Tree is indigenous to the Kalahari Desert. It only blossoms after 20 to 30 years of maturity. It can grow up to 40 ft. in height and age up to 300 years. The Star Tree is also known as the "Quiver Tree." Because of its spongy inner branches, the native people of the Kalahari, the ancient San people would hollow out the branches and use them to carry their arrows, hence their quivers for their arrows.
