Limited Release No Added Sulphur Organic White
This wine does it all: No Added Sulphur, organic, fair trade and vegan friendly, but it's more than just a box-ticker. This 100% Colombard is only made in the best vintages (so get it while you can!) and shows a lovely wild flower and honey nose and real tangy freshness on the finish. It has a deeper colour than one would expect in such a young wine, which is because sulphur has a bleaching effect on the colour of 'normal' wines.
87 Points - The Wine Gang, 'From one of the world's biggest producers of no added sulphur wines, this Colombard coudn't be more right-on if it came wearing sandals and a hipster beard: organic, fair trade and vegan friendly too. High with floral notes, some herbal character and very punchy on the aromatics, the palate is cool and clear, with a zippy acidity, in a Sauvignon Blanc lovers style. Nothing left-field about the stuff in the bottle.' August 2016 (2015 vintage)
Stellar Winery is situated 275 kilometres north of Cape Town on the road to Namibia. It is a joint venture between four farmers and the cellar. The cellar processes about 900 tonnes of organic grapes from farms straddling the northern boundary of the Olifants river wine region and Namaqualand. Working closely with the farms, winemaker Dudley Wilson (ex-Flagstone), produces a great range of wines.
