Steeped in a rich history of wine making, Montpellier has been producing award-winning wines since the 1890s.
Surrounded by three imposing mountain ranges, the Tulbagh Valley offers a unique climate ideal for viticulture exclusive to the Cape. Unlike many areas in the Western Cape, the summer nights are cool and fresh due to the massive surrounding mountains that are renowned for occasional summer snow caps, often as late as Christmas. A distinctive terroir and a wide variation of soil types enable the production of a diverse range of top-quality wines. Montpellier is part of the Tulbagh Wine Route known for featuring award-winning wines with integrity and character representative of this Tulbagh Valley terroir.
A ruby red, full-bodied Cabernet Sauvignon, wood matured for 12 months. It is complemented by ripe dark berries with hints of eucalyptus, mint and classic aromas of pencil lead, finishing with soft tannins and a great mid-palate gravity and length.
This ripe tropical Chenin blanc displays fresh crunchy apple notes before bursting onto the palate with a mouth-tingling crispness, leading to a long fruit-laden finish. Pairs well with Lightly spiced chicken curry or sushi with a dash of wasabi and ginger.
