Winemaker David Nieuwoudt

The Ghost Corner range is inspired by the extreme coastal area around Cape Agulhas near Elim, known as ‘Spookdraai’ where many ships have been wrecked. Folklore has it that the ghosts of many sailors who perished through the years can be seen wandering the wild waters. These wines are intriguing and extreme as the story of their origin at the southernmost tip of the Cape winelands.

Grapes are hand-harvested in the early morning at 21–23 °B. The winemaking process is done in reductive conditions with the use of dry ice and carbon dioxide gas. Grapes are crushed at 8 °C with approximately five hours of skin contact before a light pressing. Two days of juice settling is followed by racking and the addition of selected yeast. Fermentation is at 11 °C for approximately 24 days. Finally, the wine is further matured on the fine lees for an additional four months with a monthly bâtonnage before the final blending and bottling

Tasting Notes:

An explosive nose of green nettles, green asparagus and pink grapefruit citrus with some dusty fig leaf and blackcurrant aromas creates excitement anticipation of what is to follow. The palate does not disappoint – a delicious carry through of the expressive nose creates a broad, flavour-intensive palate, ending with a lemon zest mouthwatering finish. The influence of the Cape Agulhas terroir is apparent in the salty/briny final lingering aftertaste.

Best Enjoyed:

This wine will pair well with most salads with a vinaigrette dressing, light fish dishes and grilled line fish, coronation chicken, pasta alfredo and tomato tarte tatin. This wine is also the best partner for chèvre or any cheese based on goat’s milk.

Optimum Drinking Time: 2- 5 years
