Taking its name from one of the early peoples at the Cape, Obikwa, is a range of down to earth, adventurous wines expressing their true varietal character and rich, ethnic charm. Palate pleasing with a sense of fun as depicted by the bright yellow ostrich with its remarkable long neck, these wines are a tribute to the intrepid OBiKWA people for whom the ostrich represents a life force and trusted companion!
Managed by viticulturist Annelie Viljoen, the grapes were sourced from a selection of the Cape’s vineyards in the Stellenbosch, Paarl, Wellington and Robertson areas. The great diversity of ancient soil types provides the mix of fruit which when vinified, then carefully blended gives a consistent quality wine.
A very decent house Sauvignon for less than £7 which is very quaffable indeed!
