- Other Info:
- Organic and fairtrade. The two components of this wine were aged separately on their lees before being blended together and given a short time with French Oak. The result is a pale coloured wine with a tint of yellow. Showing a hint of tinned peaches with light oak on the nose and aftertaste this is a lightly structured well-balanced smooth tasting wine. Stellar Winery is situated 275 km north of Cape Town on the road to Namibia. The winery makes use of a semi-arid climate unrivalled refrigeration capacity and extensive in-house engineering skills to produce modern Fairtrade organic wines. Stellar Winery was the first organic vineyard and cellar operation to receive the highly sought after Fairtrade accreditation. Fairtrade companies undertake to empower economically disadvantaged workers and ensure that a fair price is paid for the product along the whole supply chain. Stellar Winery undertakes a big commitment with both farm and cellar staff transported to and from work while families receive health care and the permanent services of a community worker. Workers receive free housing electricity and water as well as subsidised schooling and child-care facilities. Finally a percentage of the price of the wine is paid directly back to the Stellar Fairtrade Workers' Trust.
Light grassy, guava flavours with a hint of smoke on the nose. Very attractive wine.

This was served at Prince Phillip's 90th birthday party! We don't know what they paired it with, but suspect cold quiches, fish or seafood would work very well.
