Notes

The 2016 Arcangeli Verdelho, a white wine variety with its roots in Portugal, is made in a zesty and zippy style with ample complexity.

The grapes are grown on a small patch of land on the edge of the truly rustic platteland town of Bot River - shale soils on an Eastern facing slope. Made from low-yielding 12 year old vines with minimal intervention in cellar. Matured on the lees in stainless steel.

Tasting notes:
'The Feiteiras plantings of Verdelho, linked to the farm’s Portuguese heritage, are located close to the ocean in Bot River, producing a wine that is rich and deeply coloured, with some skin contact, understated oak and a rich, rolling wave of flavours: mealy, savoury and just a little salty. 2017-19'. – Tim Atkin, Special South Africa Report 2017 92/100

'There are two whites. The Sémillon (they use the proper accent on the name) is a mix of Hemel-en-Aarde and Bot River grapes. It’s clearly oxidatively made, stressing texture and depth of flavour, including a winning earthy note, rather than simple fruitiness. It is deliciously drinkable. The same basic principles apply to the Feiteras Verdelho (from the home vineyards whose verdelho had becoming well known under the previous Portuguese owners). A lovely, integrated ripe acidity and a sense of sweet, appley fruit.' – Tim James
