Adamastor, God of wind and storms, is portrayed in the tempestuous weather Bartholomeu Diaz and other early explorers had to overcome when rounding Africa’s southernmost tip. The grapes for this wine come from a vineyard not far off the coast where Diaz first rounded the continent. Combinations of relentless winds and low yields lend themselves to this superb Bordeaux style Sauvignon blanc/ Semillon blend.
Typical Elim minerality and fynbos characters with citrus and white stone fruit. Full and creamy on the palate, with a combination of toasted oak flavours and a dry minerality on the aftertaste.
Pairs well with seafood, particularly shellfish (mussels, clams, prawns, scallops, oysters), roast chicken or creamy chicken dishes, pork, veal, mild curries and Asian flavoured dishes.
Serve chilled, but not ice cold, ideally 10-12 degrees Celsius. Drink now to 2029.
