Theuniskraal Bouquet Blanc Case - 6 x 750ml

In the early 1700's, Theunis Bevernagie settled in a fertile valley guarded by the towering Witzenberg and Winterhoek mountains, and fed by the Klein Berg River. His name was to be enshrined in local wine lore for in 1927. Theuniskraal was bought by the Jordaan family, specifically for winemaking. In 1948, Andries Jordaan launched the estate's first riesling and a South African icon was born. Just two years later Teuniskraal riesling took gold at the commonwealth wine show against international competition. Andries' sons, Kobus and Rennie continued the tradition of fine riesling, extending plantings with other classic varieties, both white and red. Today their sons Andries and Wagner carry on the family's hands-on quality approach to winemaking. Vineyards (viticulturists: Wagner and Andries Jordaan) Theuniskraal comprises 350 ha with 130 ha under vine, mostly cape riesling, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Chenin Blanc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz. The soils are predominantly gravel and sandy loam. Clay and sandy loam soils are found along the river. The Gewurtztraminer block was planted in 2001 and grows in sandy loam soil. The Muscat De Frontignan vines, also growing in sandy loam soil, were planted in 1989. The south-facing vines are all trellised, irrigated, and situated at an altitude of around 240 m above sea level. Winemaking (winemaker: Andries Jordaan) Both grape varieties were harvested by hand and machine, mostly from pre-dawn to early morning. The Gewurtztraminer grapes were picked in mid-march at 24 degrees Celsius balling. The Muscat De Frontignan grapes were picked at 22 degrees celsius balling at the end of February. The two varietals were individually vinified. After cold fermentation at 12 degrees to 14 degrees celsius for a period of 14 days, the fermentation was stopped. The wine was blended next and bottled. 

Wine Maker's Comments: 
- Colour: Straw with greenish tints
- Bouquet: Aromas of spice and floral flavours from the Gewurtztraminer combined with sunripe raisins and a whiff of muscat flavours
- Taste: Fresh and sweet with a complexity of fruit flavours and a lingering aftertaste
- Food Pairing: An ideal partner to traditional cape desserts such as malva pudding and also excellent on it's own as a dessert wine
