Weltevrede Vanilla Chardonnay 2015

Weltevrede Vanilla Chardonnay Simplicity CollectionSimplicity Collection

Over the years, while tasting through Chardonnay barrels in our underground cellar, we came upon some barrels displaying the most attractive vanilla notes. Our curiosity led us on a journey, exploring the source of this distinctive vanilla profile, and the seed was sown to capture this enchanting essence in a bottle.

Vines are nestled in broken shale soil and Chardonnay grapes with peachy flavours are selected for good flavour intensity. Carefully selected oak is chosen for the months of maturation. White oak roasted at specific temperatures releases vanillin which marries with the tropical Chardonnay fruit to push the vanilla-like flavours to the front.

The colour is pale yellow. On the nose you get a combination of fruits like melon, mango, peach, pineapple and passion-fruit with butterscotch, crème brulee and a distinct note of Vanilla. On the palate you get peaches, a touch of zesty lime and a pleasant, lingering flavour of Vanilla to finish off with.

Enjoy this wine with friends to see if they can recognize the Vanilla flavour. Bacon and papaya salad, seafood dishes, lemon and herb chicken dishes.

Made to show as much Tropical flavour as possible.

The colour is a pale yellow with a slight green tinge. On the nose you get prominent notes of guava and passion fruit. Lovely mouthfeel with flavours of passion fruit, guava and pineapple with a crisp, clean finish.

Passing the 100 year history mark of family winemaking at Weltevrede we took time to reflect what exactly it is that makes this patch of land so special.

We honour these people, their hard work and values, their dreams and passions and preferences.

Weltevrede Cigarbox Shiraz 2015

Weltevrede Cigarbox Shiraz Simplicity CollectionSimplicity Collection

Instead of providing lengthy descriptions about a multifaceted wine, we decided to simply capture its essence and highlight a prominent characteristic in the name, Cigarbox. So we created this bold Shiraz with a smooth finish with a clear-cut, simple and identifiable label.

Vines are nestled in broken shale rocks on a south-facing slope. The small berries are filled with intense flavours of cherries and mulberries when they enter the cellar. Gentle pressing ensures that we get the best juice and we still make use of the punch down method for colour extraction, while the wine ferments in open fermentation tanks.

Very versatile with food. This Shiraz goes well with braai meats, steak, meaty pastas, smoked chicken, pork and of course biltong.
