Our oenologists' opinion
Fruity and well-rounded
Its light color with green hues announces a fresh and aery nose of lime, mint and green apple. The palate is dry, nervous and has character. The crisp finish lasts.
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
Fleur du Cap
Classified as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Cape Floral Kingdom offers a lush landscape to the region's different vineyards. The Bergkelder Selection let the wine express the South African terroir with pinotage for signature.
- Terroir: The vineyards lay on a shale and granite soil with a good water retention. The South-east slopes orientation protects the vines from the evening sun. The climate is rather mild with a breeze coming from the Atlantic ocean.
- Viticulture: The grapes are 10 to 11 years old.
- Vinification: A plot-by-plot vinification as well as a strong collaboration between the winegrower and winemaker allows to extract and preserve all of the sauvignon blanc aromatic flavors. Grapes are transferred using gravity.
