The oldest registered farm in Cape Town is Steenberg Vineyards, established back in 1682, produce a range of much loved wines through a process that is considerate of the environment & dedicated winemaking.
The farm boasts not only with incredible wines, but with a 5-star hotel too. The Steenberg Hotel, with 24 rooms that encapsulate the essence of what understated luxury entails. The hotel was recently restored & has been declared a National Monument & in my opinion is where the elegance of the 17th Century & the comfort and convenience of modern day have merged & blended as well as their wines.
Home to some of South Africa's finest award winning wines. But my favourite has to be the Steenberg 1682 Chardonnay MCC. The 1682 Brut is pale lemony in colour & has aromas of fresh granny smith apples, peach & overtones of freshly baked biscuits. Upon pouring there is a delicate mousse which exudes it's freshness. A creamy, yet fresh mouth feel. Definitely a a drink for any occasion, remaining crisp & refreshing on the palate without lacking any fullness.
I just love being Santa! Thanks to Steenberg Wines, I have a Steenberg 1682 Chardonnay MCC Magnum 1.5l & 6 Bohemia Crystal Champagne flutes to give away to a lucky reader this Christmas.
