BERGPAD (Pinot Blanc) 2016

R190.00

R1140 per case of 6 bottles

BERGPAD is a Pinot Blanc from a single vineyard block in the Jonkershoek Valley of Stellenbosch. The name for this wine is derived from the famous mountain path (bergpad in Afrikaans) that runs from the University of Stellenbosch’s sports grounds, Coetzenburg, along the Stellenbosch Mountain towards Lanzerac Wine Estate in Jonkershoek. This path has become a regular feature for local and university sports and outdoor enthusiasts over the decades.

The dominant flavour of Pinot Blanc on the nose is preserved quince, violets, lavender and pears which follows through to the palate where creaminess and softness enters at the mid-palate and lingers on the extended finish.

Only 1 113 bottles of the BERGPAD 2016 were produced.
