Cape Blend and Cap Classique offer glimpse of exceptional quality

A rare bottling of wines made only from harvests of exceptional quality has been released. This is only the second time that the Suikerboschrand Cape Blend and Anna Christina Cap Classique – both part of the top-tier Sense of Place range by Stellenbosch Hills - have been made available.

Sense of Place is dedicated to the best individual vineyard components at the winemakers’ disposal and is a window on the provenance that flows throughout the Stellenbosch Hills portfolio. As such, quantity is limited by what the vineyard provides; and, the harmony of its growing season.

Summer is the season for juicy, ripe plums – a good time to get creative in the kitchen in concert with Roodeberg’s Classic Red Blend. A Veritas gold medallist, the 2020 vintage of this multi-varietal Cabernet Sauvignon-driven blend is a symphony of textures and tastes that meld beautifully with luscious stewed or baked plums. Aromatic layers of fresh fruit with hints of spice and dark chocolate lead your senses to a mouthful of plums and cedar oak wrapped in silky tannins that linger long after the last sip.

The season for juicy, delicious plums, peaches and nectarines is here so be sure to get your share of nature’s ultra-versatile summer bounty that packs a nutritious punch.

With the peach and nectarine season already in full swing from October – March and plums making their appearance on supermarket shelves from November – April, you are spoilt for choice with these sumptuous summer gems.
