Very primary on the nose – lifted red and black fruit, tobacco and vanilla plus a little earthiness. Medium-bodied with pure fruit, bright acidity and fine tannins, the finish long and savory. Poised and understated, this wine has a good future ahead of it.

Bubbly by nature
This wine was made to celebrate the lively, sparkling personality of Sarah, daughter of the owner of Vrede en Lust Estate, Dana Buys. It is a blend of Chardonnay and Chenin Blanc, produced from grapes originating from the Vrede en Lust farm. The wine is a new release for the Estate.
Grapes were picked at 18,5 to 19,5 degrees Balling and fermented to produce base-wine for further assembly of this fresh and lively sparkler. After experimentation with different components of the base-wine, the final blend was made. Second fermentation was initiated in the bottle in late March, where after the wine was degorged in October to limit lees contact.
