4 Stars 2021 Platter’s South African Wine Guide
Delicately coloured dry rose, 20 (84 pts) preview gives veritable fruit salad of flavours balanced by crisp acidity & spangly fresh finish.
In 1994, the year was hot, and when picking for a Cap Classique, we could not pick fast enough – the sugar was too high and a plan was foiled. The hopes of Founder Achim von Arnim were low but in the glass, magic happened – serendipity emerged. Passion was affirmed, and the iconic blend of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir was born, the blend that nobody had heard of in a still wine. They tasted it, they experienced joy and they fell in love. We are extremely proud to have introduced South Africa to this blend.
Enjoy the freshness of Chardonnay with the body of Pinot Noir. Expect citrus fruit underlined by a firm acidity, with an abundance of white peach, lychee and red fruit on the nose.
