Three wines from Rickety Bridge Vineyard, Franschhoek - Chenin Blanc, Sauvignon Blanc & Pinotage
Rickety Bridge Chenin Blanc : An abundance of guava and peach on the nose with underlying floral and green fig notes. A full rich palate of tropical fruit, orange marmalade and spice leads into a long honeyed finish.
Rickety Bridge Sauvignon Blanc : Vibrant and zesty with aromas of pear, gooseberry and passion fruit layered with subtle mineral tones. Full flavoured with a rich mid-palate, peach and lychee flavours which linger on the finish.
Rickety Bridge Pinotage : Concentrated black fruit flavours with layers of plums, black and blueberry fruits with spice. While the light oaking accentuates flavours of red currants and blue berries. A velvety palate with well-integrated tannins which are supported by subtle smokiness leading into a lingering juicy finish.
Rickety Bridge is a boutique wine cellar situated just on the edge of Franschhoek village in South Africa. Undoubtedly one of the most progressive boutique wineries in the Cape. The historic winemaking cellar was recently renovated and converted into a barrel fermentation centre, the new winery was built and modern cooling equipment was installed. Situated in the shadow of the Dassenberg mountains, the mild Franschhoek valley is seeing excellent wines from new winemaker Wynand Grobler .
