Fleur du Cap Riesling 1999

On the nose the wine is herbaceous and spicy with grassy undertones. On the palate it is well-balanced with appealing fruit flavours and a persistent fruity aftertaste. This is a true Cape Riesling, with a greenish hue. Perfectly complements fish dishes and lightly prepared chicken dishes.
