This refreshing white blend has an expressive nose dominated by tropical and passion fruit with multiple layers of complex flavours on the palate as a result of the diverse blend components.

This wine is named after a lady rumoured to have been a particularly close friend of Simon van der Stel, the first Governor of the Cape.

Vineyards had perfect canopies - allowing optimum light penetration for the ripening of bunches and development of good colour.

61% Sauvignon Blanc, 28% Chardonnay, 4% Semillon, 4% Viognier, 2% Roussanne, 1% Grenache Blanc.

Overall 2011 was a harvest that brought a smile to a weary Viticulturists face!

Although we had a dry winter, there was plenty of water when required in the hot summer months to get the vineyards to mature naturally without undue stress.

At harvest, perfect phenolic ripeness with lovely soft, ripe tannins was achieved. The berries came in at lovely low sugars due to cool conditions at harvest, awesome colour and great quality berries.

The grapes for this wine were selectively hand-picked in the morning.

Harvested: hand-picked February
