History

With its unparalleled scenic beauty, the seaside town of Hermanus attracts visitors from all over the world, especially during the Whale Season. Every spring, pods of Southern Right whales arrive to calve in the bays and rear their young. This range of wines is inspired by the spectacular coastline, sought after by both whales and nature lovers.

Regional Information

The wines are made from grapes from selected vineyards throughout the winegrowing regions of the Western Cape.

Current Vintage

2014

Vinification Details

The grapes are harvested by hand. Four days of skin maturation is allowed to extract sufficient colour and fruit. After pressing, malolactic fermentation takes place. The wine is stored in American oak for two to three months after blending.

Rating: 5 star out of 5

Excellent

Outstanding value. Doubt I'll find a better red under £6.

Rating: 4 star out of 5

Very Acceptable

Very good VFM. Relatively smooth, no harsh tannins, one of the best wines in this price bracket.

Rating: 1 star out of 5

Smells of chemicals

I can smell and taste the sulphites in this wine, saving it for cooking now. Not a wine for drinking!

Great Value

No contest, as this is a quality wine with great flavour. Make this your own house wine for the season and your friends will be quite happy. Fruit, tannin and acidity all good with a fine dryness that does the business.
