Summer, always a season for white wines, is no exception this year with warm to hot days and cooler evenings, ideal for sipping outdoors.
From South Africa, Indaba, produced and bottled for Cape Classics, is well suited to that task.
It’s a Sauvignon Blanc and this summer, is now available in new three liter boxes for the first time.
Indaba is behind a philanthropic movement created to bring early childhood education to youngsters in need in the Cape Winelands community. Visit www.indabawines.com. 00
This Brut Cuvee “T” 2014 from Domaine Vincent Careme was made using the traditional sparkling wine method with a second fermentation in the bottle. The wine, made and bottled by Tania and Vincent Careme, is made with Chenin Blanc grapes.
Fresh and delicious, it’s a perfect wine for summer sipping. The winery began in 1999 and is located on 37 acres which are home to trellished bush vines, an average of 35 years old. The soil consists of clay and flint. The cellar is described as a “traditional 16th century troglodytic cave” carved in limestone rock.
The wine, with 12 percent ABV, gets a second fermentation for one month in the bottle with no added sugar. Notes of citrus and apple are prevalent and the wine is effervescent and fresh with what the winery’s owners, Vincent and Tania, call “racy” acidity. It is distributed by Cape Classics.
