Therese and Hans
Champagne or traditional method sparkling wine is a must-have during the festive season. Our exclusive Vintage Cuvee Therese Rose exemplifies our commitment to excellence. While many opt for high yielding, unripe grapes for sparkling wine production, we take a different approach. Utilizing our high-quality, estate grown Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grapes, we create a less acidic and more refined wine. By employing these top-quality grapes, the need for excessive sugar dosage is unnecessary, allowing the natural flavours to shine through. This careful process also involves extended aging on lees, contributing to the wine's unparalleled complexity and texture. With seductive aromas of fresh strawberries and ripe raspberries dancing on the palate, this meticulously crafted sparkling wine promises an enchanting sensory experience that lingers long after each sip.
Our Cuvée Thérèse Rosé Brut Nature (Méthode Traditionnelle) boasts impeccable grape quality, leading to the rarity of a zero dosage. This dry Sparkling is more wine-like, rich with the magnificent flavours of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, accompanied by a subtle mineral twist. Embrace the health benefits of a zero dosage and no added sugar!
Indulge in its refined perfection for a sophisticated cheer, or savour it alongside delectable seafood dishes, enhancing the delicate flavours, or with the subtle elegance of smoked salmon.
Experience the unparalleled richness of our Botrytis Riesling, meticulously crafted to perfection. From the delicate transformation of Noble Rot to the meticulously picked Trockenbeerenauslese grapes in three careful passages, each carefully selected precisely at the optimal point of botrytis infection, and then sun-kissed to form perfectly shrivelled raisins, every step is vital to the exceptional quality of this dessert wine. From the tiniest yield, to deliver a luxuriously rich and luscious flavour that tantalizes the palate.
Delight in the lingering aromas of honey, apricot, and honeysuckle, beautifully complemented by refreshing citrus undertones that add a brilliant zest. Despite its undeniable power, it remains wrapped in the most elegant style, creating a harmonious balance that lasts endlessly on the palate, leaving a lasting impression that speaks to the artistry and dedication behind every sip.
There is rarely a festive season without dessert. Personally, I cannot resist a slice of the classic lemon meringue pie, its tangy citrus aromas reminiscent of the delicate notes found in our dessert wine. Not one for sweets? Skip the dessert and treat yourself to this liquid sweet elixir, a delightful indulgence which will elevate your festive experience to new heights.
Indulge in the beautifully aged vintage of our rich but dry ‘GV’ a match made in heaven for your Christmas table. Reminiscent of the iconic ‘Smaragd’ (Emerald), the highest classification from its native home the Wachau in Austria. A haunting, vibrant elixir, intense, and pure with amazing complexity that lingers on the palate.
Handpicked in several stages of ripeness, this labour- intensive wine embodies a truly noble essence that is destined to last the ages. However, during the festive season, it might not last long, given its undeniable appeal and exceptional quality.
Known for its exceptional versatility, this wine harmonizes seamlessly with an array of festive dishes, making it an exquisite addition to your celebratory feast. I particularly enjoy savouring our GV while preparing my flavourful Thai fish curry, and undoubtedly, I'll find myself sampling it plenty during the cooking process.
If not now, then when? Immerse yourself in the allure of one of the world's most sought-after grape varieties, Nebbiolo, as our exceptional rendition stands on par with the finest Barolos or Barbaresco’s. Revered as the elixir of dreams, Nebbiolo embodies the essence of a truly exceptional wine. Exuding a captivating balance and poise, it dazzles with heady aromas of violet, rose, ripe red berries, and a captivating array of spices. On the palate, relish the sensation of polished tannins enveloping succulent red cherry, raspberry compote, hints of liquorice, and wild herbs. Hailing from the celebrated wine region of Piedmont, this majestic varietal demands meticulous care, and no expenses are spared in nurturing this regal gem to absolute perfection. Prepare to be enchanted by its immensely seductive allure.
That will beautifully complement your festive roast, or here in the Southern Hemisphere summer, we will fire up the grill for a succulent New Zealand lamb rump or a juicy ribeye steak. For a more laid-back dining experience, a delightful pasta dish serves as the perfect companion to the enchanting notes of our Nebbiolo, ensuring that every meal is an extraordinary and memorable experience.
