Benguela Cove Wine Estate is a specialist producer and wine destination, at the start of the Walker Bay wine region. Located in the Western Cape, between Cape Town and Hermanus.
The estate boasts the longest stretch of ocean facing vineyards (2.6km), grown at the lowest altitude (2.7m above sea level). Their vineyard position is unique, at the edge of the southern coast of South Africa. Here the south-easterly sea breeze is chilled by the Benguela Current flowing up from Antarctica, which plays a key part in the superb quality of these wines.
The Moody Lagoon Red Blend 2019 serves as an ode to the Bot River lagoon adjacent to the estate, showcasing the diversity found on the estate. Nicknamed “Moody” the lagoon is known to be unpredictable, changing in colour and flow direction throughout the day. Reflecting all seasons in one day, the lagoon is instrumental in moderating temperatures, joining forces with cool winds caressing the vines from the Atlantic Ocean.
Varieties: Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot, Merlot
