Overview of the Wine

Protea makes wines that dare to be exotic and beautiful, in every way imaginable. You'll see this right away as you discover their uniquely crafted bottles made by designer Mark Eisen. The paisley and Cape Dutch themes on the bottles speak to Protea's South African roots, but more than that they transform the bottles from mere containers to objects of beauty and contemplation. A bottle of Protea won't just sit on your table, it will enliven the table – and probably spark more than a little conversation. The inspiration for the brand is the protea (PROH-tee-uh). It's South Africa's national flower, and it got its name from the shape-shifting Greek god Proteus. These wines are just as exotic and special as the name suggests.

Winemaker's Tasting Notes

This wine is made with 100% Chenin Blanc grapes from select bush vine vineyards in the Swartland and Voor-Paardeberg regions of South Africa. These grapes contribute a balance of freshness and natural acidity to this medium bodied, crisp white wine.

Lively and fresh entry to the palate with stonefruit, peach and apricot. Crisp and zesty with some citrus notes adding vibrancy. Rounded, fleshy mid-palate with ample fruit character balanced by acidity. Gently lingering light finish.
