Our oenologists' opinion

Fruity and crisp

With its pale straw color, this wine offers a nice open nose of white flowers, exotic fruits and ripe pineapple. On the palate, it has a good balance with a frank character of exotic fruits, citrus and white flowers. Final frank and greedy.

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 ?

Obikwa takes its name from one of the first peoples of Cape.
