Chenin Blanc, Cannonberg, 12.5%
Micro Fair Trade – ethical – sustainable farming
A crisp, light nose of green peppers and citrus fruit leads to a classic palate of tropical notes, apples and hints of pears. The complexity of this wine shows in the long, balanced finish of pears and grapefruit.
Producer: Cannonberg Project – 'Dare to make a difference!'
The Cannonberg range, comprising a Chenin Blanc and a Cabernet Sauvignon, is produced at the Imbuko Farm based in the historic town of Wellington, in the heart of the renowned Cape winelands. A percentage of the money from the sales of these wines goes directly to support projects within the local community. Philippe is in regular contact with the growers and representatives from the local community throughout the year to discuss how best to use the ongoing funds.
At present, the donations are being used to improve and maintain the facilities at the Uitkyk Creche, a centre which takes care of pre-school children and assists them with their homework in the afternoons while their parents are at work among the vines.
1% of every sale will be donated to the Mental Health Foundation via Work for Good
Due to the relatively small scale of our cheese and condiment producers, occasionally some cheeses and condiments may be unavailable and we will have to substitute them with similar products. Please state in the notes on the Cart page, if you do not wish to have any substitutions.
