About Nicky Versfeld's White Wine



Stretching from Darling in the north to Cape Point and Constantia in the south - and to Stellenbosch and Paarl in the east, the Coastal wine region accounts for nearly half of the total wine producing areas in South Africa.

South Africa's wine industry began in the Coastal Region, with Constantia and Stellenbosch in particular contributing to the country's viticultural history. In 1679, the second Governor of the Cape, Simon van der Stel, established both a wine estate at Constantia and the town of Stellenbosch which he named after himself.

It was the influence of the French Huguenot refugees though, who brought vines and their winemaking experience and knowledge to the Coastal region at the end of the 17h century, which truly established the industry in the region.

A classic wine with a focused duration of flavours, reflecting the cool coastal origin from which it emanates, Nicky Versfeld Sauvignon Blanc incorporates complex aromas of gooseberry, citrus and fresh herb. The palate is intensely fruit driven, combined with mineral flavours and a long crisp finish. Serious and sumptuous, yet food friendly, Nicky Versfeld Sauvignon Blanc is a wine to be enjoyed immediately and up to eight years from vintage.
