Saturday Tasting – Out of South Africa

Join us this Saturday, October 1 for a free tasting of wines of South Africa.

This weekend features four exciting selections from South African vineyards, featuring Kalk Bay and Sixpence.

All of this week’s featured wines will be on sale! We invite you to experience these selections:

Kalk Bay:

The Vanilla–Just outside Cape Town exists the quaint fishing village of Kalk Bay, near where some of the first South African vineyards were planted. It is here where this wine derives its name, inspired by the village’s charming elegance. The Vanilla is a wooded Chenin Blanc with rich layers of citrus, pear, and honey, enhanced by a buttery mouthfeel which is lifted with a fresh acidity and an expressive vanilla finish.

The Lightsman–The wine is a blend of Petit Verdot (58%) and Malbec (42%). To ensure smoothness with a lower tannin structure, the Petit Verdot was harvested slightly earlier and the juice to skin ratio was reduced. There are aromas of black cherry and plum with raspberry and white pepper on the palate, enhanced by a soft, silky texture, lifted by fresh acidity.

Sixpence:

Sauvignon Blanc Semillion–This 50/50 blend of Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon is a fruit forward and well-balanced. 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. Lots of ripe tropical fruit can be found, with a vibrant acidity and a well-rounded finish.

Cabernet Sauvignon-Merlot 2015–Sixpence is Opstal Wine Estate’s lifestyle range. This blend of Cabernet and Merlot is a satisfying easy-drinking, everyday table wine. The cooler temperatures of the region of South Africa result in wines low in tannins. It exhibits red berries, plum, and hints of coffee and chocolate with a well-rounded finish.

Tasting hours for Saturday, October 1, 2016 will be from 1:00 until 3:45 pm. Our “Out of South Africa” event will be held at Wyatt’s Outlaw Saloon, in the back of the store.

Participants must present valid I.D.

Whether you need a bottle to impress at a dinner party, or just to celebrate life with someone special, Wyatt’s has you covered.
