DE GRENDEL VIOGNIER 2020 - Straits Wine


Wine Region : Cape Town, South Africa

Grape : Chardonnay

Tasting Notes

Pale lemon colour with a trans­lucent rim, reflecting a clear and bright wine. The nose is a rich and exotic bouquet of ripe yellow stone fruits, gardenia flowers and honey­dew with a drop of honeycombe and clove. On the palate the wine surprises with a fresh but medium-bodied mouthfill and medium-plus acidity. A slight hint of gentle oak can be detected on the aftertaste. On first palate entry the wine is light and spritzy, but surprisingly broad with a slight oiliness on the mid-palate.

About the Winery 
The De Grendel cellar sits majestically elevated on the fynbos-covered slopes of the Tygerberg with a postcard-perfect panorama of Table Mountain and the city of Cape Town.
It was built in accord with its surroundings, with tones of sand and slate combining both traditional and contemporary materials. Although modern in design, it references the colonial architecture of the main house, with its deep shaded stoep and big arched windows to take in the views, sea breezes and the views of the dam below.
De Grendel is not a terroir winemaker, preferring to blend wines from different regions to create our award-winning wines. Our grapes are harvested from two principal vineyards.
