Buitenverwachting Wines – Beyond Expectations
The winery Buitenverwachting is located in the beautiful wine region Constantia which is only a stone’s throw from Cape Town. The name means ‘beyond expectations’. An ambitious aim which however the winemakers seem to achieve every year. Granite soils and a cooling sea breeze help the winemakers to create consistently good products that always feature a distinctive aroma structure. Particularly popular is the Buitenverwachting Christine, a wine made from typical Bordeaux grape varieties and named after the owner’s wife. Despite the blend being inspired by French style it shows its South African character with a pronounced fruit. The red wine is defined by an outstanding quality and unique flavour which has already been rewarded with 4.5 John Platter Stars and the Old Mutual Trophy Bronze. Very impressive is also the Hussey’s Vlei Sauvignon Blanc. The grape variety’s aromas of gooseberries and freshly cut grass are inherently fresh and can also be found in this wine.
