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.

I like this wine. Please add more South African wines to your repertoire. Byerskloof pinotage would be ace.

EXTREMELY IMPRESSED

Had a bottle of this gem in a hamper and didn't give it much thought until I had drank it. I was delightfully impressed but it's smooth and sweet tones. Definetly wouldn't of thought it costs as little as it does- what a bargain!!!
