Our oenologists' opinion

Fruity and crisp

Its light color with green hues introduces a fresh nose of citrus and pomelos. The palate is balanced, rounded, fine, bold and crisp with a nice envelope.

Features

Body ? The body is the way a wine feels inside the mouth. Several factors, such as the alcohol content and the presence of tannins, contribute to the feel of the wine.

Freshness ? The freshness of a wine is defined by its level of acidity. Unlike rounded wines, fresh wines are easy to drink, and are more lively. Acidity plays a necessary part in a wine's structure.

Aging ? All wines do not have the same aging potential. Some are supposed to be consumed at a young age while others must be kept for longer periods of time.

Do you know ?

Established in the 17th century, the South Africa vineyards were born from the collaboration between dutch settlers and French huguenots (religious refugees). The first one would have planted the first vines and the second contributed with their savoir-faire.

Domain and appellation

  • Les Caves d'Adam Tas

    Established in 1679 by Simon Van der Stel -Cape of Good’s dutch governor- the Stellenbosch province is one of the first South African winegrowing region and remains today one of the most prestigious one.

     

    • Terroir: Implemented on the Table Mountain foothill, the vines lay on a rich soil and benefit from an oceanic breeze.

     

    • Viticulture: The harvests are thoroughly sorted out and handpicked when the fruit has reached perfect ripeness. The “steen” or chenin blanc is planted at an altitude oscillating between 130 and 180 meters.

     

    • Vinification: After a brief skin contact the juice ferments at 13°C for 14 days.
