Description

Granted in 1715, the historic Natte Valleij and its grand old Cape Dutch buildings have been home to quite a few interesting people and produced its fair share of fine Cape Wines. One of these was an Italian prisoner of war (P.O.W.). Captured in North Africa and exiled to the Cape to spend the duration of the Second World War on the grounds of Natte Valleij. Common knowledge to have helped in the winemaking on Natte Valleij. All we have as a reminder of his stay is the inscription P.O.W. B.T. 27-12-1943. In his honour, we have hand-crafted this wine, our take on a South African Bordeaux. Traditionally vinified and focusing on the Simonsberg, so famous for its Cabernet Sauvignon based blends, matured for 36months in large oak barrels, giving that undeniable drinkability.
