Duque de Montebello Jumilla Tinto, Monastrell, PDO, süß
On 2nd February 1659, Jan Van Riebeeck (the founder of Cape Town) produced the first ever recorded wine in South Africa.
Whilst it is impossible to vouch for the quality of the 1659 vintage, we can vouch for the 2022 Chenin Blanc, also known as Pineau de la Loire in France and sometimes Steen in South Africa. It is believed that this is the same variety as grown by Van Riebeeck way back over 362 years ago.
Our Cape Root starts with the seductive aromas of ripe honeydew melon, pear and peach scents, leading to a fruity and clean aftertaste which will linger long in the memory. Its restrained grapiness is perfectly balanced with its fine fruity acidity and has resulted in a beautifully versatile offering.

A beautifully versatile offering
The wine growing region of Western Cape in South Africa is only fifty miles from the coast and benefits from the cooling effect of the Benguel current. The Chenin Blanc which is cultivated there is the most important white grape variety in South Africa.
