Stumble Vineyards Verdelho 2012

Bruce Jack is one of the most passionate, innovative and enthusiastic winemakers you’ll ever meet – plus he knows the technical side of the trade inside out. He was named South Africa’s ‘Winemaker of the Year’ in 2009 and his cellar, based just 400 metres from the sea, scooped ‘Winery of the Year’ in 2008.The grapes for this zingy, aromatic white come from a group of vineyards that Bruce spotted at the bottom of an isolated valley whilst out hiking in the hills. He determined to find the owner and has since produced an award winning range of wines from the grapes, which produce wonderfully crisp, elegant fruit thanks to the cooling sea breezes. The latest addition, this Verdelho, is perfect with seafood starters or grilled white fish.
