Sit back, relax and take in the long summer days with exquisite sunsets and views whilst enjoying a chilled glass of the new release Protea Chardonnay 2013, the latest offering to come from the Anthonij Rupert Wines range.
The perfect summer drink designed for earlier enjoyment, winemaker Dawie Botha describes it as a very lightly wooded wine, displaying a somewhat shy nose which offers up grapefruit pith and a faint hint of orange blossom. Ripe citrus and stone fruit flavours make their presence felt on a full, textured palate. The wine is tangy and fresh with a distinct twist of citrus zest and some chalky grapefruit too. Lively and appealing in its approachability and drinkability, the wine is light, perfect to enjoy on its own or with Orange and honey glazed roast chicken, Terriyaki glazed seared salmon or a delicious pasta Carbonara with crisp pancetta.
The Protea Chardonnay 2013 is available directly from the farm or select wine outlets and retails for approximately R60.00 per bottle.
Situated in the picture-perfect Franschhoek Wine Valley, visitors to Anthonij Rupert Wines are treated to these views whilst tasting the Protea range, housed in the exquisite Terra del Capo Tasting Room; situated at the entrance to the property, which was designed to showcase the company’s Italian-inspired Terra del Capo range.
