9.2

Our second stop of the day was at Cape Point Vineyards. One of the very best vistas we had seen on any of our many trips. Absolutely, a great place to have lunch and stare at that view.

The nose reveals; lemon custard, lime, green melon, banana peel, green apple skin, pineapple, stone fruit, honeysuckle, steely minerality, wet stone, some cut grass & green bean with yellow lilies and white flowers.

The body is full, round and waxy. Texture is beautiful. Lemon custard, lime, green melon, banana peel, green apple skin, pineapple, stone fruit, cantaloupe, honeysuckle, steely minerality, wet stone, powdery, soft chalkiness, saline notes, some cut grass & green bean with yellow lilies, citrus blossoms and white flowers. The acidy is round and perfect. The finish is; elegant, lush, well balanced/polished and persists beautiful for minutes. 92 just missing 93. My favorite of the five we tasted.

Photos of, a panorama view from their terrace patio restaurant, my better half enjoying that view, her ceviche starter and the mountains that run from the right side of property all along the back of it.

9.0

The nose reveals; lemon, lime, grapefruit, green melon, white peach, pineapple, white peach, cream, soft cut dry grass, granitic soils, flint, dry herbaceous notes, limestone, yellow and white flowers with greens.

The body is full and rich. Heavy presence of granite, steel minerals, chalk and white spice. It’s a hard mineral invasion into the palate. Lemon, lime, grapefruit, green melon, white peach, pineapple, white peach, cream, soft cut dry grass, flint, dry herbaceous notes, limestone, yellow and white flowers with greens. The acidity is lively and high. The finish starts fresh & fruity and then quickly dries and the minerality dominates.

Photos of, their beautiful restaurant terrace view, crazy beautiful indigenous flowers on the tables, my Ribeye entree and their terrace restaurant full on Family Day, a South African holiday that is always the Monday after Easter.
