A delicate fruitful wine in the “new world” style. The upfront acids add a refreshing dimension. The style is crisp and dry with mouthwatering gooseberry and tropical fruit salad flavours, with a hint of citrus on the palate.

These carry through well into a long tangy finish. Nose loaded with guava and coriander amongst other ripe tropical tones. It is excellent with seafood, pasta, grilled chicken kebabs and fresh summer salads.

Estate Blend (Colombard / Chardonnay)

A medley of fresh fruit flavours, including peaches, pears and lemons is offered by this wine’s bouquet and palate. Full on fruit, the firm acid adds to the wine’s briskly clean style and youthful appeal. The rich characters of this wine are not only in the nose but also in the lingering aftertaste.

The Chardonnay compliments the fruitiness and breaks the natural high acidity of the Colombard. Ideal with seafood and lightly spiced meat. Best enjoyed in its youth to capture the freshness

The Pepper Tree Shiraz

Although there remains some youthful greenness, the bouquet of this full-bodied wine suggests tremendously ripe fruit, reminiscent of spicy plum jam. Ripe, sweet-fruited nose with loads of berry fruit, pepper and vanilla with subtle hints of karoo bos. Full rounded mouth adds plum to all that the nose suggested.

Smoke and spice develop as the glass stands. Rounded tannins make for very easy drinking even at this early age but will develop with great benefit over 4/5 years. This wine should benefit from further maturation

Good food wine, especially rich stews and winter food. It is ideal with spiced game casseroles, stuffed roast pork of lamb or pickled tongue.

Long, sustained finish. Good now yet has potential to develop over 4/5 years. Good food wine or as stand-alone drink.

Rich and full mouth feel with luscious, yet balanced finish with enough zesty acid to make whole mouth appear smooth and rounded rather than particularly sweet. Enjoy as a dessert on its own, with a selection of cheeses or spicy curry and Thai food.
