Swartland Winery Limited Release Viognier 2018

The Swartland Limited Release Viognier could happily come from the slopes of the Northern Rhone, such is its purity of varietal character. The grapes are sourced from a single vineyard in the Swartland region (situated on an elevated plateau) where the high diurnal temperature range preserves acidity and halts excess ripening. The classic notes of apricot and peach are present, with a floral beeswax and jasmine character to the nose. The palate is full and rounded, typical of Viognier, with the higher alcohol lending body more than heat and delivering real flavour intensity. This is a wine of finesse, perfect with a light summer lunch.

The wine was fermented in second and third-fill French oak barrels in which it was then aged for a period of 6 months, with regular battonage. No animal-based fining agents or winery aids were used during the vinification.

Winery Information

The Swartland region of South Africa is at the forefront of the new wave Cape wine movement. Swartland Winery attempts to showcase the very best of this rugged, unforgiving terroir, crafting an expressive range of wines that typify the zeitgeist of the modern South African wine scene with the aid of vegan-friendly winemaking techniques.
Vineyard Note

For this vineyard, environmental sustainability is just as important as balance of flavors. They select a variety of different wine grapes, raised with as little intervention as possible and amongst cover crops for nutrition, moisture, and protection, to create an expertly blended flavor. Averaging a yield of six tonnes of fruit per hectare, the grapes grown in these vineyards are unsurpassed in quality and reflect the vivacity of their environment.

Tasting notes

Spices, dried pear and flowers abound, followed by a sweet floral perfume of ripe tropical fruit. Good follow-through from the nose with complex flavours of violets, dried pear and apricot prominent. Delicate oak lends structure and finesse.

Serving suggestion

Light lunches, fresh sushi or shellfish dishes or cheese platters.

Grapes - 100% Viognier

Can you explain your shipping charges?

We charge the amount the courier charges us to deliver the wines. In the majority of cases this is £10.00 for a dozen wines. For local delivery we charge £5.00 as we can often do this ourselves, by local we mean Milton Keynes.

Couriers charge by weight and size and a case of wines is both heavy and bulky and so the costs are fairly high. The charges are the same if you are buying 1 bottle or 6 bottles but they change if you go over 6 bottles due the the excess weight and size. Couriers also charge a fee to cover fuel excess and this all goes towards the total cost not to mention the 20% VAT to be added to everything.

Currently if someone orders a dozen wines they are charged £10.00 but if they order 24 bottles the charge is the same!

If you wish to have your wines shipped to other countries the costs are extreemly high and often not worth paying for. The cost for example to ship to the USA for a dozen wines would be £100.00 for the shipping alone! Therefore we have taken the decision not to ship any wines outside of the UK.

 

What is your minimum order?

The minimum order is 1 bottle! I prefer it if people order more and you get better value with the delivery if you do this too!

 

What if I want to send wine as a gift?

No problem, we will send to your preferred address and even include a card free of charge!

We have two kinds of cards a blank one and a Thank you one. However if you want a Valentines one or a birthday card or anyother type of card please let us know. We will write your personal greeting and even include the soppy stuff. We don't charge for the cards as its our way of thanking you for choosing us to send a gift to your loved one. 

 

What about a discount?

I may be able to take a little off the price if you ask nicely and there is a large enough order. Please do not ask for a discount on any orders under 12 bottles.  Email me with your requirements and I will let you know if I can do anything. However the best way to get a discount is to sign up for the newsletter as there is often special offers given away to newsletter subscribers.
