A little late this week, but never too late! This week’s wine review by Michael Olivier is a Welmoed Sauvignon Blanc, let’s see what Michael has to say..
The price: Just under R30 a bottle
First Impression: Waterfall of poached cape gooseberries and spicy lemons
The Story: I first tasted this wine at the cellar some three years ago and fell in love with it. Nicky Versfeld is the Cellar Master – Welmoed is owned by The Company of Wine People – and Stephan Smit made this wine.
The Taste: Lovely crisp and dry with a long aftertaste. Aromatic fruit on the nose and then on the palate the sharpness of cape gooseberries and some tropical fruit so typical of this variety when harvested later in the season or from a warmer vineyard.
Michael Says: Great value for money offering more roar for you rand than you expect, high quality to price ratio
Did You Know? The Company of Wine People have a range of wines at all prices, from Arniston Bay to Helderberg, Kumkani and Thandi.
The small print: Selected vineyard blocks of Stellenbosch grapes. 13.5% alcohol
