COGH Caroline 2018
Anthonij Rupert Wyne was founded on the farm L’Ormarins in Franschhoek. Originally owned by the late Anthonij Rupert, the farm was taken over by Johann Rupert in 2003. In 2006, Johann initiated the search for all vineyards in South Africa older than 35 years. Riebeeksrivier, a historical farm in the Swartland region, was purchased in 2007 with the goal to produce top Rhône-style varietals. The vineyards selected for the Cape of Good Hope range represent some of the oldest in the country, lovingly tended to produce only the finest reflection of their terroir. The Cape of Good Hope Caroline 2018 is a well-rounded and textural white wine blend with wonderful food pairing potential.
Mid straw; seductive whiff of biscotti, herbs of Provence and chamomile. Bone-dry & complex with lovely concentration of Beurre Bosc pear in harmony with nose. Soft acidity and ultra-long finish complete fine picture.
Creamy vitello tonnato, or roast veal shoulder with a lemon and herb stuffing, or mushroom risotto made with big black mushrooms.
