Sixpence - Red Blend 2014

Wine notes

This blend consists of Cabernet Sauvignon (65%) and Merlot (35%). The Sixpence range is Opstal Wine Estate's lifestyle range. This wine is produced as an easy-drinking, everyday table wine. Wines from this region have slow-ripening vines, which results in wines that are full in flavor but not high in alcohol, which is certainly the case with this wine.

The cooler temperatures of the region results in wines low in tannins, which is exactly what you look for in an easy-drinking wine. 

Tasting notes

The wine is low in tannins and shows red berries, plum, and hints of coffee & chocolate, with a well-rounded finish.

Sixpence - White Blend 2015

Wine notes

This blend consists of Sauvignon Blanc (50%) and Semillon (50%). The Sixpence range is Opstal Wine Estate's lifestyle range. This wine is produced as an easy-drinking, everyday table wine.. This is a fruit forward and balanced  white blend. The warm South Africa climate, produced fruit forward tropical white wines, which is definitely true with this blend. The addition of Semillon contributes to the tropical characteristics, which adds to the complexity of the blend. The higher acidity from the cooler climate of this region, adds perfect balance to the wine. 

Tasting notes

Lots of ripe tropical fruit with a vibrant acidity and a well-rounded finish.
