A great wine for long summer lunches, especially with the lower alcohol content. A fantastic alternative to Sauvignon Blanc – Anthony de Jager-

 

Pale straw in colour with aromas of citrus, green melon, apple and hints of floral notes. A zesty, limey palate with a refreshing fizz, length acidity and lingering salinity.

Wine Info
Description

The grapes were destemmed, crushed and the free-run juice was settled for two days. The clear juice was racked off and cold fermented in stainless steel tanks. On completion of fermentation, the wine was left on the fine lees for 6 months and allowed to go through malolactic fermentation before filtration and bottling. A slight fizz was intentionally added to the wine at bottling (CO2 carbonation) to add extra refreshment.

    Found the Fairview Verdelho at Backs restaurant in Stellenbosch this weekend . What a gem…light lemony and sparkly. A beautiful and unusual wine for a summery day in the sun. Or a great italian anti pasto spread.
