The Wine:

Named after speed skaters who would leap over multiple barrels in barrel jumping competitions, and just like those daring skaters, this South African Viognier is packed full of character, fermented in steel to get a pure expression of the aromatics of the grape. Apricot, orange blossom and subtle tropical notes of dried pineapple are in abundance and combine with a fresh grapefruit acidity leaving a long and refreshing impression on the palate. Good as an aperitif or is perfect as a match for seafood salads, crab and poached salmon, green salads and chicken dishes.

Further Info:

The Western Cape is roughly the size of Greece and is the fourth largest province in South Africa. A temperate southern coastline is fringed by mountains whilst the north meets up with the Karoo plateau. The west coast of the province is extremely dry and windy. Two oceans meet on its coast; the cool Atlantic on the west and the warm Indian Ocean on the south coast. The weather is perfect for growing grapes – rainfall measures up to 40 inches a year, the mild Mediterranean weather provides the perfect climate and the ground is mainly sandy and rough.
