NEW!!   Spring has sprung… so a good excuse to tuck into an elegant white blend to wash away the cobwebs

Shamwari Colombar/Sauvignon Blanc 2004 – R 25 per bottle. A white blend for a change from the Breede River Valley. This area is renowned for its white wines. The valley is surrounded by the Langeberg and Riversonderend mountains. There are marked variations between the soils and micro climates in the different side river valleys. By exploring these natural and viticultural differences the winemaker (Albert Basson) can compose a distinctive wine. The 2004 harvesting season was sunny but cool, which lead to well balanced, healthy grapes.

Great for picnics and meals alfresco, at 12% vol alcohol you can afford to open two. This wine has pleasant aromas of honey, pear and mint. Green melon on the palate, with a lingering aftertaste of refreshing lime. Ideal with herby pasta and delicate flavoured fish.
