Stellar Winery is celebrating the arrival of 2010 with the launch of its long-awaited Stellar Organics Sparkling wine. It is a blend of Chardonnay and Chenin Blanc, with a faint nose of mixed fruit cocktail. The dry, fresh tingly taste has a very clean finish and a burst-inyour- mouth freshness is its most outstanding feature.
Enjoy the bubbly with canapés, spicy curries, oysters or poultry dishes. Another mouthwatering aspect is the fact that it is easy on the pocket selling at a RRP of just under R50, so it’s easy on the budget.
The Stellar Winery is situated in the Lower Olifants River Valley on the West Coast Wine Route and is South Africa’s largest producer of organic Fairtrade wines. The cellar is jointly owned by the Rossouw brothers and the Stellar Fairtrade Employees’ Trust. The vineyards and winemaking process are organically certified by Control Union Certifications.
The cellar produces a range of award-winning organic and no-added-sulphur organic wines from the vineyards in Trawal, the Van Rhynsdorp area, Koekenaap and Kakamas. Each region produces a wine with its own character, from the crisp whites of the coastal vineyards to the rich, ripe reds from the Van Rhynsdorp region.
