Aged in old foudres, the 2017 Family White Blend is scented of fresh bright yellow orchard fruit spinning out of the glass with a slightly pithy white spice. Medium to full-bodied, the weight and texture of the wine are well crafted and complex and will pair effortlessly with food.

The 2017 Family White Blend is matured in foudres for 12 months. Grass clippings, stem ginger and a smear of dried honey comprise the bouquet, which needs a little more encouragement than usual. The well-balanced palate is more immediate, offering a fine bead of acidity and a tang of lemongrass and ginger toward the finish. I would like a little more roundness and complexity on the finish. Give this a couple of years in bottle.

Region: Coastal Region

South Africa is a fascinating country for wine, and the coastal regions at the very tip of the African continent are widely regarded as being one of the finest wine regions in the world. It isn't difficult to understand why the early European settlers in the 17th century saw such potential for viticulture in the area; the heat is fantastic, the summer days wonderfully long, the soil rich in minerals, and the strong winds coming from the ocean provide much needed coolness in which the grapes could ripen slowly and fully. Over time, South Africa's coastal regions became covered in strong, healthy vineyards, and today, the wine industry of the region is booming. The past few decades have seen wineries experimenting with a wide range of grape varietals, and also producing fortified wines and sparkling wines of great character alongside their classic varieties.

Country: South Africa

With its hot, long summers and oceanic winds from both the west and the east, South Africa is something of a haven for a wide range of imported grape varietals. Since the mid-18th century, the country has been associated with some very fine wines made using complex and careful blending techniques, with one of the most famous and widely loved early examples being constructed from Pontac, Muscadel and Chenin Blanc varietals. Since those colonial days, the regions around Cape Town have proven again and again to be fantastic areas for producing interesting and delicious wines, with many of the best examples of Champagne style sparkling wines originating from these fertile lands. From the scorchingly hot regions of Orange Rivers, to the far cooler and temperate appellations in Walker Bay, South Africa has developed a booming wine industry responsible for many of the finest New World wines available anywhere across the globe.
