A melody of classic white wine varieties which come together perfectly in every glass.
Aromas of passion fruit and citrus with hints of freshly-cut grass.
Medium-dry, crisp and generous with minerality and a fresh acidity.
The grapes were sourced from top-performing vineyards situated in the Darling, Cape Town and Ceres districts, all cool climate winegrowing areas with the benefit of slower ripening of the grapes to achieve greater flavour intensity. The vines are grown in granite and sandstone soils, resulting in grapes with a zestier and higher natural acidity, which adds to the freshness and longevity of the wine. Open vineyard canopies bring about greater sunlight penetration of the grape bunches, contributing to more balanced acidity, in turn making the wine deliciously palatable.
Colour Crisp with a touch of lime green.
Bouquet Aromas of a highveld thunderstorm and flinty, grassy smell with zingy lemon and granadilla notes.
Palate Dusty flint with lemon zest and marmalade flavours can be found on a balanced, refreshing palate. Vivacious acidity is poised by juicy fruit nuances with some granadilla and tropical notes noticeable.
Made from the finest Chardonnay and Pardina grapes, Formentera White Ocean has a straw-yellow colour that expresses elegant aromas of citrus fruit, with a floral touch towards the finish.
On the palette, there is a distinct sensation of freshness accompanied with intense flavours of green fruit that stand out and persist. The well balanced acidity leaves a lasting, pleasant impression that tickles your taste buds.
The wine pairs well with pastas, white meats and fish – particularly shell fish.
