Being a lighter wine it is easily enjoyed as an aperitif or as a “sundowner”, but pairing it with food is a breeze. Serving it at around 10 degrees Centigrade and with ceviche of fish or sushi is a real winner. It also stands up to lightly spicy dishes or soups and is great with chicken salad and a main fish dish.

This is the vintage we have all been waiting for; in the Overberg, especially the Hermanus area, it was a superb year for all varietals. This is the vintage you want to stock your wine cellar with. The season was preceded by an exceptionally wet year in 2014, making 2015 seem like a dry year, when in fact it was just right. All the climactic conditions aligned, we enjoyed ample spring rains, a cool January and a temperate and dry summer, with only the occasional hot spell.
