MARQUES DE RISCAL LIMOUSIN
With its beauty, refinement and typicity, Marqu?s de Riscal Limousin represents the most outstanding qualities of the Verdejo grape, famed for its fragrance, fresh acidity and ageing potential.
This wine is made from grapes from bush vines 40 to 50 years old, cultivated in the best gravel soils of the highest terraces of the district of La Seca, and vines and ungrafted pre-phylloxera vines from the Segovia zone. The clusters are collected by hand one by one and taken to the winery in 15-kilo crates to avoid oxidation as far as possible. After stabilisation in cooled stainless steel vats, fermentation takes place in 600 litre wooden vats and the wine is left to age on the lees for up to 8 months.
The result of this process is a white wine with a particularly beautiful style which displays the potential and versatility of Verdejo, as well as the amazing potential of Rueda as one of the regions for the classic Spanish white wine.

The Cape Mist is a natural phenomenon in Cape Town, stealthily moving in as a cool Atlantic breeze over Table Bay. The mist provides a soft blanket over the surrounding slopes and creates the perfect cool climate conditions associated with the Durbanville terroir. These conditions are crucial in creating the perfect environment to grow Sauvignon Blanc, renowned for its abundant and lingering tropical fruit flavours and balanced freshness.
This is a white wine with personality, which resolutely defends its characteristics against the perils of time, allowing it to maintain the highest quality for several seasons.
Straw-yellow with greenish highlights, it has an ample nose, with an intense bouquet featuring flowers, vanilla, lemon, lily of the valley and bitter apples. Its nicely
dry taste is full, well-balanced and elegant.
Considered to be one of the greatest Piedmontese white wines, Gavi di Gavi represents the essence of the Cortese grape, cultivated in the Monferrato area, on the border with Liguria. Here, the winds that blow in from the sea enable the creation of a wine that is always crisp, with pleasant, almost salty, mineral notes, perfect for aperitifs or to pair with fish.
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.
