From the very first moment the Selection 16/79 Sparkling White n/v inspires the connoisseur with its bright, light colour and fine perlage. Inviting aromas of apples, pears and tropical fruits unfold on the nose and on the palate, as well as nuances of nutmeg and vanilla, underlined by floral tones. Uncomplicated and with a crisp acidity, this sparkling wine is an ideal aperitif, but it also harmonises wonderfully with grilled fish, roast chicken or a fresh salad. The Selection 16/79 Sparkling White n/v is a limited sparkling wine, which promises sparkling pleasure on every occasion. This fine sparkling creation is part of Selection 16/79, which pays homage to the beginnings of South African wine culture and its founder Simon van der Stel, who arrived in the Cape in 1679.

Selection 16/79 – a declaration of love to the South African art of winemaking

Selection 16/79 commemorates Simon van der Stel, who came to South Africa in 1679 and became the first governor of the Cape. He was also the one who founded the wine culture of his new homeland and thus laid the foundation for the winemaking tradition in the Cape Winelands, which continues to this day. The Selection 16/79 is not only a homage to the origins of South African viticulture, but also reflects the richness and unique character of South African wines. The fact that the wines in Selection 16/79 offer something of everything that makes South African winemaking special is due on the one hand to the fact that the grapes come from different growing regions, but also to first-class winemakers.

Selection 16/79: A wine collection as colourful as the rainbow nation

Selection 16/79 consists of five diverse red wines, two fruity fresh white wines, one rosé and two sparkling wines. All wine creations have been created in cooperation with selected winemakers and reflect the different facets of the South African wine world. For red wine lovers, Selection 16/79 offers a Pinotage, a Merlot, a Cabernet Sauvignon or a classic Cape Blend. A Sauvignon Blanc from the Elgin and a typical Chardonnay will delight white wine fans. With the Sparkling White and the Sparkling Rosé, two sparkling wines round off the Selection 16/79.

Selection 16/79 – always a good choice

Thanks to its multi-faceted nature, Selection 16/79 offers the right wine for every occasion. If, for example, you are looking for an uncomplicated white wine to enjoy with family and friends, you will find Sauvignon Blanc a wonderful companion, which incidentally also goes well with light dishes. Speaking of food: In this regard, all the creations in Selection 16/79 are a good choice. The Chardonnay is simply a dream with fish, and Cape Blend, for example, goes perfectly with your favourite pasta. At a party – or if you have a good reason to toast – the two sparkling wines should not be missing. As different in style as the creations of Selection 16/79 are, thanks to their complexity and fruity elegance they all radiate South African flair in the glass on every occasion.
