The Good Guys Take:
This is a fancy wine, and for the price a steal! The 2017 Terrasse White Blend is an absolute joy. It tastes like the mountain, the trails, the citrus farms, the apple orchards and the sea. It has both texture and wonderful vibrancy. It’s what you might call a quintessential Cape white blend, and includes Chenin Blanc, Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Viognier, Marsanne and Rousanne.

A polished light yellow gold colour, this wine has a complex bouquet of spicy citrus and stone fruit with hints of orange blossom, hazelnut, crushed oyster shell and butterscotch. On entry, the wine has a soft full palate. Subtle fruit flavours of peach, litchi and apricot are complimented by hints of sweet spice and vanilla. There is good weight on the midpalate and a light texture. Crunchy apple acidity holds the wine together into a lingering, succulent finish. Drink 2019-2030.
