A trio of wines for the festive season…

Three exceptional wines from the Steenberg Estate

Fun. Fruity. Fresh. Everything you want, then, for a festive sparkle. This Steenberg Sparkling Sauvignon Blanc is light and smooth, but has a zippy acidity to lift the tropical flavours of pineapple, pear and guava. A fresh brightness rounds off a delicious and refreshing sparkling wine, a perfect drink for a hot summer’s day. R145 from you local wine stockist or steenbergfarm.com

The 2020 Steenberg Sauvignon Blanc, pale-straw in colour with an ever so slight green hue, has a seductive bouquet showing fresh cape gooseberry, nettle, capsicum and white blossom. This cool-climate Sauvignon Blanc is sumptuous … all grapefruit zest and elderflower. R145 from www.steenbergfarm.com/buy-wine-online/

The Steenberg 2017 Merlot is an excellent expression of the cultivar: elegant with soft red fruit and characteristic notes of vanilla, cedar and clove with a lively edge. The nose offers red cherry and redcurrant, while the palate reveals sour cherry, coffee and spicy clove.

This lovely fuller-bodied wine will stand up to rich dishes with strong Mediterranean flavours … so serve with braised and roast meats, tomato-based stews, mature cheeses and briny olives. R190 a bottle from www.steenbergfarm.com/buy-wine-online/
