Tasting Notes

Not only do we love the wine but we love the story too. Any of you who have taken a shortcut, used ready made pastry, or perhaps even taken a sneaky peek at someone else's paper in an exam will know that sometimes a little bit of cheating catapults you a long way ahead. When the Helderberg began to be touted as 'the next big thing' in South Africa, Pieter Walser saw his opportunity. He scoured the area hunting for the infamous 'White Gloves', those with big bank balances who had researched and scientifically analysed every inch of their favoured plot. Once they had settled down to roost Pieter did the only sensible thing and simply bought the plot of grapes next to theirs. You have to admire a man with the cajones to pull that off and then name his wine after it!
