Whiffs of fresh pear, pineapple and rock melon, dominate this attractive tropical bouquet. Hints of zesty lime and nectarine add complexity and balance to the palate, while providing elegance and structure to the wine. The aftertaste is pleasantly refreshing yet soft and round with a lingering finish. 

Early ripening conditions saw the first fruit arrive at the cellar mid-way through January. Although the drought conditions persisted, ideal weather conditions throughout the growing seasona dn harvest resulted in healthy fruit and small berries with great flavours and exceptional acids. A great vintage. 

Anthonij Rupert Wyne proudly introduces the Protea Range. Everything about this range seeks to marry the old with the new. The heritage of the vines, innovatively tied into distinctive packaging designs, is made to be re-used and recycled, thus prolonging the lifecycle of the product. While we are celebrating Cape wine culture, we have stripped it down to some of the defining elements of the landscape, irrevocably tying the brand to the land. We invite you to be the judge!
