Cape of Good Hope Caroline 2019 Riebeeksrivier Swartland

The Riebeeksrivier farm is situated on the slopes of the Kasteelberg. Blend of 37% Marsanne, 37% Roussanne, 20% Chenin Blanc and 6% Viognier. The grapes were harvested by hand, the wine spent 7 months on the lees in old French oak and stainless steal (15%). Aromas and flavours of crunchy dried autumn leaves, vanilla biscuit, stone fruit, nectarine, peach and apricot and an elegant, dry and refined mouthful. Fresh acidity and a pleasant chalky grip. Complex, structured with delightful mouthfeel and texture. Beautiful integration of oak makes for a long, layered but sophisticated wine.

Food pairing:
Wonderful food pairing potential! Mild Asian kitchen with fish and poultry, grilled tuna & vegetarian dishes and stews.
