South africA tasting notes

February 2019

Find our favorite tasted wines in each vineyard. Of course it’s very subjective, and everyone has its own preferences. It also depends on the moment of the day, the food you eat with, the people sharing this special moment and many other things! 

haut espoir

Chardonnay, 2017

We liked its typical flavours of citrus and lime accompanied by a rich textured mouthfeel, due to the barrel ageing. We also enjoyed the acidity that stays in the aftertaste.


Shiraz, 2012


We enjoyed the white pepper and dark cherry aromas and the wine’s complexity thanks to its barrel maturation.

Grand Duc, Shiraz, 2015


A very strong wine, with a rich textured mouthfeel but a smooth aftertaste. We enjoyed the slight tannin structure and its smoked bacon aromas !
