Arriving end of March 2021

I am delighted to find this wonderful small family venture making some great wines at every price point.

Truter Family Wines, is a family business with Hugo and Celeste Truter at the wheel with a combined 30 years of experience in the wine industry. Truter Family Wines has now been up and running for over 12 years and produces the award winning Agaat blends. Agaat is a name they stumbled upon while searching for the perfect name for their ‘baby’, but it turned out Celeste was expecting twin boys. A beautiful backstory for a beautiful wine.

Cape Fern Sauvignon Blanc 2020

Cape Fern Sauvignon Blanc 2020 available through Newton Wines.

The vines grow on high clay content terroir with little irrigation. This is a vibrant charming wine with soft tropical flavours, a good body, and an appetizing, crisp, sustained finish. A finely structured wine.

Enougth fruit and acidity that this will go well with Asian or Cape Malay dishes.

Grapes: Sauvignon Blanc    Alcohol: 12.23%

This wine has a juicy layer of berry and chocolate flavours. The grapes were picked at just the right time to create a balanced and soft mouthfeel with a mid-palate that lingers.

I absolutely love this wine, it made me sit up and smile.

The Christina is a vibrant and classically styled blend is bursting with flavours of crisp, green apple, freshly cut grass and capsicum, infused with tropical notes on the palate to create a lingering finish.

Blokhuis Grenache Blanc 2017

Blokhuis Grenache Blanc 2017 supplied by Newton Wines

This is ground breaking and absolutely stunning white Grenache.

The wine comes from a single vineyard in Piekenierskloof, it is beautifully crafted with etherial qualities! .

You will find that this wine has aromatic notes of citrus zest, raw coconut, and a touch of spice greet you at first and follow through with racy, natural acidity.

Thinking of how to relish this wine? Our Blokhuis Grenache Blanc is ready to be enjoyed right now but will gain in complexity with aging. It is particularly well complemented by richly spiced dishes like Chicken Satay, Moroccan Tagine or medium-hard nutty cheeses such as Emmentaler and Gruyère.

Grapes: Grenache Blanc    Alcohol: 13.5%
