A smooth and balanced wine showing vibrant stone fruit, yellow plum and a touch of spice. Inviting floral aromas are followed by a juicy and refreshing palate with a lingering finish. A tangy white wine for early drinking.

The Vrede en Lust Artisan Range is an exclusive range of carefully handcrafted wines, made in very small quantities exclusively for our Wine Club Members. For this range the winemakers are encouraged to experiment with different styles and winemaking techniques using small batches of site specific grapes.
The labels are reproduced from Susan’s own handwritten versions of the labels. Artisan Pinot Grigio is made of the blue-coloured Pinot Grigio (also known as Pinot Gris) grape, highly popular for its delicate fragrant nose. Grapes originate from the Vrede en Lust cool-climate farm in the Elgin district.
The grapes were harvested at optimal ripeness during February. After careful berry-sort-infermentation took place in stainless steel tanks. Before bottling, the wine was matured on the lees for a couple of months.
