Short Street CGV is fresh dry white wine with the clean uncomplicated structure and well-defined fruity flavours associated with wines produced from the old bush vines of which the last remaining examples are primarily located in the Swartland.
A slight hint of perfume from the Viognier integrates perfectly with well-balanced natural acidity for a refreshing, mouth-watering finish.
Served well-chilled (8 to 10°C), the wine is exceptionally food-friendly, enhancing enjoyment without masking food character.
