• The Backsberg Family Reserve White 2017 received a Gold award at Veritas recently and is the perfect celebratory wine for the festive season.  The Family Reserve White 2017 is a rather exotic blend of 58% Roussanne, 25% Sauvignon Blanc and 17% Chardonnay.

    It goes exceptionally well with rich cheeses and full-flavoured, creamy food. It particularly complements chicken and duck and has a wonderful medley of coconut, peach and aniseed aromas combined with vanilla undertones on the palate and a creamy, long-lasting finish. A chilled bottle of this wine could make an ordinary toasted cheese sandwich a gourmet feast!

    The Family Reserve wines reflect the very best Backsberg has to offer. Only produced in exceptional vintages from the very best vineyard blocks, no effort is spared to create these fine wines of true personality and distinction.

    The philosophy of Backsberg remains that of providing pleasure and enjoyment to a broad range of wine lovers by producing wines not only with structure and finesse, but also with a high level of ‘drinkability’.

    The Backsberg Family Reserve White can be purchased online at www.backsberg.co.za or directly from the farm at the cellar door price of R225 per bottle.
