Region: Hemel-en-Aarde Ridge
The Alheit’s goal is clear: they want to produce wines with a clear Cape identity. They want to show that the Cape’s vinous heritage is worth celebrating and protecting, that old vineyards and “ordinary grapes” are in fact wonderful, and that our winemakers are only just scratching the surface of what’s possible in the Cape.
A blend of Roussanne, Chenin Blanc, Chardonnay, Verdelho and a little Muscat.
The grapes for this wine are from a slow ripening site, resulting in full flavour and high acidity.
An inviting nose – floral perfume and dried herbs followed by a hint of citrus, stone fruit and quince. Impressive concentration , punchy acidity and just a touch of yeasty complexity before a pithy finish.
We recommend roasted artichoke with rosemary and sage with freshly baked baguette.
