We're getting behind the wines of South Africa in a big way at Seven Cellars. The wine makers and producers really need our help after a total ban on alcohol sales during the lockdown there; so look out for many more SA wines coming to our shelves very soon. By buying a bottle we can try to help the farmers and winemakers in their hour of need - give them some much needed support, and get to enjoy a superb wine while we're at it!
This has been made from the grape variety alvarinho - the grape used in so many of the wonderfully fresh and zesty Portuguese vinho verde wines. Vinho verde is the biggest DOC in Portugal in the cool north western region of Minho. We haven't seen too many wines made with this grape outside of Portugal so we're delighted to see this fine and fragrant grape make it out of the country - and see it flourish in South Africa where it positively thrives in that Stellenbosch coastal climate. This is a lively fresh and mouthwatering wine. It's delightful.
