About the Wine

This summer our Head Wine Buyer, Andrew Baker, went to the Western Cape to search out the best wines of the new vintage. He came across this winery - tucked up the back of the pretty township of Franschhoek, up a winding dirt road which opens out to an extraordinary untamed mountain. Here at Wildeberg - or Wild Mountain - JD Rossouw creates unique wines. This one is made from old vine Fernao Pires grapes, a variety which was originally brought from Portugal decades ago to make brandy with. Very few plantings still remain, and these old vines are carefully cultivated in order to produce a white wine with amazing concentration of flavour, piercing acidity and mouth-watering fruit character.
