Valencia and Eamonn introduce Christiena Trousseau

Gentle aromas of elderflower and orange blossom are perfectly balanced with soft lime, passion fruit, green apple and a hint of freshly cut grass. Crisp and elegant, with a long vibrant finish.
The Sauvignon Blanc grapes are hand harvested early in the vintage and at night when it is coolest (between midnight and 2am). The grapes are picked over two
tranches – the first picking provides the grassy and elegant tones for our Sauvignon Blanc wines while the second selection provides the riper fruit for the
mid-palate that makes this wine so sought after.

Valencia Magwaza and Eamonn Dowling present Place of Rocks Chardonnay

Weltevrede Place of Rocks is a limited selection from vines growing on broken shale rock slopes. Together with the sun and the wind and rocks, this wine celebrates the people of the terroir, their artisanal flair, the skillful pruning hands, the dedicated cellar workers, a team of masters in their own fields. Place of Rocks invites you to ponder its depth of complexity, the seamless dance of vibrant minerality, citrus and deeper notes of toast and spice. A mouth-watering minerality, limey length and lingering aftertaste. This delicate layering and polished texture honour a wide variety of culinary options. The chef’s choice, the sommelier’s confidant, and the food lover’s favourite. A beautiful marriage, as Place of Rocks loves food and food loves the Place of Rocks.
