Vrede en Lust has been producing Viognier from Simonsberg Paarl region since 2007 and in 2010 the first crop of Viognier from Elgin were harvested. As the vineyards matured we noticed that the two styles (warmer and cooler) complement each other when it comes to wine style and since 2012 only one Viognier has been produced under the the Vrede en Lust range.
A collaboration of terroirs – this wine showcases the best of both worlds. The abundant aromatics from Simonsberg-Paarl, with the more refined aromas and intricate spice palate of the Elgin fruit.
Stone fruit aromas with hints of orange blossom on the nose. Delicate notes of spice with creaminess on the palate, beautifully balanced by judicious use of oak.
Freshly picked and fermented Frappato grapes are blended with ultra-ripe Nero d'Avola that have dried on the vine to provide a delightful "Appassimento" style red - rich, savoury and a real crowd-pleaser.
Sileni's state of the art winery, vinifies grapes using modern and traditional methods which help to produce a dry, refreshing, all round well structured wine. Pale lemony green in colour with a satisfying nose of kiwi, lime, gooseberry, tropical fruits and a touch of grassiness. Whilst the palate displays taut acidity, zingly citrus fruits, gooseberry, stone fruits and minerality.
Classic Provence rosé, expressive and aromatic, blending fresh cherries and floral notes alongside more exotic fruits then finishing with a soft round palate packed with peach and raspberry.
