Fleur du Cap swoops eight awards at Veritas this year

Fleur Du Cap received an impressive eight awards at this year’s Veritas Wine Awards including a Double Gold for the Unfiltered Sauvignon Blanc 2015.


Fleur du Cap’s Unfiltered Sauvignon Blanc 2015 achieved a coveted Double Gold Medal, and the Unfiltered Chardonnay 2015 awarded Gold. In addition to this they also received three Silver and three Bronze awards to wines in the range.


“We are extremely proud of the whole team being able to achieve such high recognition. These awards are only made possible through the dedication of our winemaking team and producers”, says cellar master Elunda Basson.


Referred to as the Oscars of the South African wine industry, Veritas has been awarding South African wines and winemakers since 1990, earning its reputation as one of the country’s most authoritative and credible competitions for market-ready wines. Awarded wines carry a symbol of excellence and a promise of quality.


The Fleur du Cap approach is unconstrained. Using only meticulously selected grapes from the finest vineyards from across the Western Cape, Fleur du Cap produces a range of wines that offer diversity of choice and diversity of taste.


The grapes for the Unfiltered Sauvignon Blanc were sourced from Darling, overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. The vineyard (planted in 2004) is farmed under dryland conditions and yielded 7 tons/ha. The palate is rich and full-bodied with a mélange of tropical fruit. The mid palate is rich and layered ending in a lovely pure, long, smooth finish.


This Sauvignon Blanc pairs well with dishes such as green curries, summer salads with young asparagus tips and green figs or Parma ham.
