In a strong salmon pink, Selection 16/79 Sparkling Rosé n/v shimmers in the glass and immediately exudes the wonderful scent of fruity and floral aromas. Especially the beautiful notes of strawberries, apples and rose petals enchant the hearts of every connoisseur. On the palate the sparkling wine is perfectly balanced with its fresh acidity and elegant perlage. Well chilled, Selection 16/79 Sparkling Rosé n/v is a wonderful aperitif, but it also goes very well with sushi, dishes from Asian cuisine or fruit-flavoured starters. This exclusive sparkling wine, which is only available in limited quantities, belongs to Selection 16/79, which is reminiscent of Simon van der Stel. He came to South Africa in 1679 and was the first governor to lay the foundation stone for the winegrowing tradition in the Cape, which continues to this day.

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 four diverse red wines, two fruity fresh white wines 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.
