Neethlingshof Wine Estate is steeped in history dating back to 1705 and continues to balance nature and winegrowing in the Western Cape’s glorious Stellenbosch Winelands.
The Maria’s grapes come from Neethlingshof’s Weisser on the Hill and Sauvignon blanc vineyards, exposed to the cooling mists of False Bay, which help to create the appropriate set of conditions under which botrytis cinerea (noble rot) can flourish to produce grapes of concentrated intensity.
Cultivars: 76% Weisser Riesling and 24% Sauvignon Blanc.
Golden yellow colour. A bouquet of fruit cake, dried apricot, honey and peach aromas. Concentrated flavours of fruit cake with honey and marmalade and a good sugar acid balance with a fresh, fruity palate.
