The Winemasters ensemble, comprising a top-quality range of varietal offerings, is named to honour the Paarl winery’s long-established tradition of winemaking excellence. These classically styled, food-friendly wines with abundant fruit flavours, elegance and finesse, treasure the integrity of the grapes in every step of the wine-growing and winemaking journey. Every drop demonstrates an unwavering commitment to world-class vineyard and cellar skills. This wine is made from Pinot Grigio and Colombar grapes.

in the vineyard : The fruit was sourced from vineyards across the Western Cape. The viticulturist works hand-in-hand with the grape growers in managing each vineyard block to ensure the best quality fruit for this wine. The different microclimates and soil types associated with each vineyard add to the complexity of the wine.

in the cellar : The grapes were harvested at 22˚ to 23˚ Balling during February. After crushing, the juice was drained immediately to minimise colour extraction. Following clarification, the free run juice was fermented in stainless-steel tanks at 15˚C for a period of three weeks. A certain amount of residual sugar was allowed in this off-dry wine.
