Protea Reserve Sauvignon / Semillon
From the Western Cape of South Africa comes this amazingly refreshing white wine. The product of world-famous Stellar Organics, you'll find that this white--a blend of Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon grapes--makes for a wonderful addition to your wine cellar. The white is beautifully dry, but with a sparkle that makes it 'zing' in your glass. It's a rich, lively vintage, with the flavours of green apples and passion fruit, with hints of citrus and lemon on the palate. In addition to being Certified 100% Organic, the vintage is also "Fair for Life"--meaning the wine is fair trade and improves the quality of life of the workers involved in the growing, harvesting, and vinification process. All in all, a wine worth a try!
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.
