I want to share some wines that I recently tasted. Every once in a while, something comes along and hits all the right buttons and we are off and running with something delicious. Last week we tasted the wines of the Kaapzicht winery of Stellenbosch, South Africa. Kaapzicht (Kahp-zekt), in the Afrikaans language, means “cape view” because the Cape of Good Hope can be seen from the Steytler family’s vineyards. Four generations of Steytlers have farmed this beautiful location, and they are making some distinctive and delectable wines. As far as pure wine value goes, they are tens on a ten-point scale.

Kaapzicht Kaleidescope White Blend 2017 Stellenbosch
kaapzicht-kaleidoscope white
A soft well rounded balanced white blend of Roussanne, Verdelho, Chenin Blanc, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, and Semillon. Floral aromas are driven by the Roussanne and Sauvignon, along with ripe yellow stone fruit and apple. Although it is richer and more complex than the other whites in the range, the 2017 Kaleidoscope White is still a versatile fresh and juicy white with a light frame and crisp acidity.
