Boplaas Ouma Cloete Straw Wine 2013

Honouring my family’s vinous heritage going back to my great, great grandmother Cloete from Constantia, who left the lush cool valley for the dry hinterland of the Klein Karoo in the mid-1800s. This maiden vintage straw wine was crafted from the most raisined sun dried bunches of Viognier, fermented in traditional lagars with manual pigeage to extract maximum flavour and aromatics. This complex bright gold straw wine will make an ideal accompaniment to traditional Cape Malay or aromatic Moroccan fare; or perhaps enjoyed with desserts, such as Peach Melba or a summer berry Pavlova. Best enjoy chilled and in good cheer.
