Fleur du Cap, a mainstay in the Distell Global Luxury Wine Portfolio, recently dusted off its old look and added a more vibrant, yet sophisticated new positioning, look & feel.
The first wine to adorn this exciting new look is the Essence du Cap Sauvignon Blanc 2017. Previously known as the Bergkelder Selection, the Essence du Cap range is known for exceptional quality and wines that express their true varietal character and this Sauvignon Blanc is no different.
Grapes were sourced from different cool climate vineyards located in the Western Cape, including Helderberg, Elgin and Cape Agulhas. Only free run juice was clarified and fermented. The wine spent two months on the fine lees after fermentation before being blended, fined and filtered for bottling.
The abundance of aromas and flavours typical of the diverse growing regions make for a complex, beautifully layered wine. It is predominately driven by stone fruit, originating from the Helderberg grapes.
The finish is fresh, full and lingers in the mouth which makes this wine an excellent accompaniment to shellfish and summer salads.
