At Fleur du Cap we have the freedom to choose the finest grapes from the finest vineyards in the Cape Winelands. Fleur du Cap is not constrained by farm, vineyard or climate. Instead, we look for the best and work to achieve something special – creating wines with diversity and quality. Stellenbosch is the heartland of these vineyard sites, followed by neighbouring areas such as Somerset West, Sir Lowry’s Pass and Elgin, along with Robertson, Darling and the cool-climate Gansbaai. Each vineyard is selected for its unique combination of soils, climate, aspect and orientation best suited to the particular grape variety. Fleur du Cap works closely with a well-established network of growers who share a single minded vision of refinement and fruit purity. The wines are made at The Bergkelder in Stellenbosch and the brand is owned by Distell.
This wine has reached its plateau of peak, boasting dark fruit pastille and sweet herbaceous perfume, while retaining layered complexity, steely acid backbone and full, dry structure. It possesses an energised, muscular core that will carry it into a promising future until 2025.
Serve with most meat dishes such as beef stew or lamb casserole.
