A delicate yet fruity Pinot Grigio with fresh citrus flavours. This aromatic South African Pinot is subtly different from the classic Italian versions.

Grown in the Breede River Valley in the heart of South Africa's Western Cape, the grapes are picked from between two mountain ranges, where they enjoy cooling breezes. The result is a deliciously fruity style, with ripe pear and green apple on the nose followed by citrus fruit and white peach on the palate.

Western Cape is a geographical unit that encompasses most of South Africa’s vineyards. The Western Cape winelands’ sub-regions include Stellenbosch, Constantia, Robertson, Paarl, Walker Bay, Olifants River and Klein Karroo.

The variety of sub-regions in Western Cape is reflected in the diversity of grape varietals grown and styles of wine produced however the emphasis is on classic, international varieties such as Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc with smaller amounts of Verdelho, Malbec, Sangiovese, Syrah, Grenache, Grenache Blanc and Viognier in the mix.
