Domaine Grier Odyssea 2011

The wine clearly expresses the minerality and spice expected from the vineyard and it is supported by fruit and a hint of aniseed. It is naturally fresh with good palate weight and balance.

The Grier family, owners of Villiera Wines in Stellenbosch South Africa are highly regarded producers of quality Cap Classique and a comprehensive range of red and white still wines. For many years they have been leaders in the South African wine industry through quality and innovation as well as environmentally friendly practices.They have maintained close contact with France where wine making traditions are strong. Their relationship with the Denois family, who contributed to their leading position amongst bottle fermented sparkling wine producers in the Cape, was critical in the development of their dream to own a piece of France.

in the cellar : This wine was created to reflect the “Terroir” using only classic varieties of the region. Each component was vinified separately before blending in December. Use of oak was limited to ensure a style that expresses the site without being masked by wood.
