20/11/2017 – Nederburg, 5600 Pinot Grigio 2017

(2017) Named after the 5600 guilders the original Dutch settler paid for the Nederburg estate, a purchase of this wine generates a small donation to the #DoYourPart charity providing bicycles to some of South Africa's most underprivileged citizens. It opens with good generic pear and apple fruit, a little touch of exotic lychee and passion fruit, in bright style. In the mouth it has a touch of sweetness, but it is vivacious and flavourful, nodding towards the tropical, with enough acidity to balance and make it slip down very easily. Watch the video for more information on this wine and the charity.
