Fleur du Cap Unfiltered wines flaunt new contemporary elegance


Upgrade your wine rack with Fleur du Cap Unfiltered wines when this premier range steps out with a stylish, refreshed look, making its debut with the new 2014 Sauvignon Blanc vintage.  

Capturing the essence of Fleur du Cap with contemporary simplicity, the new label features a gold emblazoned cartouche that depicts the rich biodiversity of the Cape Floral Kingdom. Table Mountain and a carpet of vineyards are framed by an intricate tableau of birds, flowers, monkeys and insects. Even Bacchus, the god of wine, makes an appearance in this Garden of Eden.

Inspired by nature and harking back to more traditional, hands-on winemaking practices, the Fleur du Cap winemaking team manages to unlock the natural style inherent in the best grapes from select parcels of vines grown in a diverse range of vineyard sites, terroirs and micro climates throughout the Western Cape.

The just released Unfiltered Sauvignon Blanc 2014 is a true expression of its Darling and Elgin origins with a mélange of fig leaf, classic gooseberry, asparagus and delicate tropical fruit aromas.

“The palate of this wine is rich and full-bodied with multiple layers herbaceous and tropical fruit flavours. It makes an absolutely divine pairing with tangy Thai dishes or fish garnished with lemon,” says Pieter Badenhorst, who is responsible for Fleur du Cap white wines and works closely with cellarmaster Andrea Freeborough and viticulturist Bennie Liebenberg at Die Bergkelder, the famous “cellar in the mountain” in Stellenbosch.

Fleur du Cap Unfiltered Sauvignon Blanc 2014 is available at select fine dining restaurants, boutique wine stores or at the Fleur du Cap cellar door at Die Bergkelder from around R100 per bottle.
