On the West Coast 300km north of Cape Town, the largely unspoiled coastline of Doringbaai is home to arguably the world’s only vineyard so close to the icy Atlantic Ocean, Fryer’s Cove. Vines dot the hillside by the rocky shore, providing wines with a distinct maritime character. This Grenache-Cinsault blend uses grapes from vines around 20 years of age harvested during early morning. Fermentation in open-top tanks with gentle pump-overs 3 times a day.
The result is a medium-bodied wine of exuberant ruby colour with light violet hues. Packed with aromas of wild raspberry and a hint of clove spice, the palate boasts smooth tannins, balanced acidity, and a seductive round finish. Try with game or a meaty-style fish such as a tuna steak, or serve lightly chilled with spicy foods.
Fryer's Cove Winery was founded in 1999 after many years of hard work to create the perfect vineyard conditions by the Atlantic coastline. This unique placement allows use of the natural resources surrounding it, with ocean water used for cooling allowing a much reduced carbon footprint and, of course, South African wines like no others.
