Tasting Notes:

Almenkerk is nestled in the Elgin Valley surrounded by apple orchards and produces some of the most unique expressions of traditional varietues we have found to date. The Almenkerk family emigrated to South Africa in 2002 with the aim of following their passion for wine, and have since, firmly established themselves as forces in the local industry.

The grapes used to make this wine are from a single vineyard: our Sunlight block, situated at 300m above sea-level. This gravelly, wind-exposed block stresses the vine to produce ripe, concentrated flavours in the grape. The vines are not irrigated throughout the ripening season, forcing them to dig their roots deeper in search of water.

After gentle pressing and cold settling, the wine is inoculated with a combination of 5 yeasts and is fermented cold until dryness.

After fermentation, the wine undergoes lees contact for 9 weeks on the gross lees and another 6 months on the fine lees with regular stirring.

Food pairing

This wine is an extraordinary accompaniment to fine cuisine with Cape Town's top chefs choosing to pair it with dishes such as Scallops with a Salsa Verde and Asian-fusion dishes.
