Description

“Capensis” is Latin for “from the Cape” and pays homage to one of the world’s oldest winemaking regions, South Africa’s Western Cape. Silene is sourced from two vineyards in the Stellenbosch District, where warm summer days meet cool afternoon sea breezes. Lime, lemon, orange blossom and nectarine aromas explode from the glass, with just a hint of crème brûlée. A full palate of citrus and rich minerals drives a saline finish. Light. Lingering. Lasting.

About Capensis

Dedicated exclusively to Chardonnay, Capensis places confidence in a single variety and its ability to express itself differently throughout South Africa’s Western Cape. Inspired by the region’s ancient geology and dramatic landscape, Capensis, meaning “from the Cape” in Latin, is guided by the hand of South African winemaker, Graham Weerts. Wielding Chardonnay’s capacity for site-expression, Weerts shines a light on the Western Cape’s sublime high elevation vineyards with the aim to rival the greatest, ageworthy white wines of the world.
