Made with 66% Chardonnay & 34% Pinot Noir, this bubbly is extra dry but maintains a complex, fruity nose of tropical fruit and biscuit flavours. Crisp acid ensures a fresh, clean and very drinkable sparkling wine.
Enjoy well-chilled to celebrate any occasion and pair perfectly with lighter meals like pasta, salmon and salads.
Dispatched by Jan van Riebeeck in search of the perfect place to grow provisions for the Dutch East India Company, Pieter Cruythoff stumbled upon a beautiful valley. But it was more than just the scenic beauty of this valley that had caught his eye; situated in the lee of the majestic Kasteelberg, the winters were mild, the summers were hot and the soil was uncommonly fertile. What’s more, ships spotted from the lookout point on Kasteelberg were just a day away from Cape Town, and so were the wagons that went to meet them, laden with the treasures of the Riebeek Valley.
While he humbly named the valley after his patron, Jan van Riebeeck, we feel it is only fitting that our valley’s most coveted treasure should carry the name of its founder. So, in honour of Pieter Cruythoff, this range of fine wine bears his name.
From the vibrant whites to the seductive reds, each one is a gem gently coaxed from the fertile soil of that same magical valley. Ironically, much of the valley’s bounty still finds its way to Europe, and in particular to the Netherlands, the land of Cruythoff’s birth.
