TASTING NOTES

Intriguing, light lime green hue shot through with white gold. On the nose the wine jumps out of the glass with focused aromas of asparagus, fresh thyme, gooseberry and sweet melon. In the background, a hint of white pepper and nutmeg. The wine seduces your palette with a texture of creamed honey, but the flavours are taut citrus fruit framed by a suggestion of toasty vanilla oak. An extraordinarily complex and satisfying mouthful.

TECHNICAL INFORMATION

Wine Region: Western Cape
Blend Information: Barrel fermented Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon.
Alcohol: 14.5%
Sugar: 2.2 g/l
Drink Before: Another cool thing about this blend is the age-ability of the wine. While the Sauvignon Blanc gives the lifted notes and the ethereal aromas, the Semillon helps the wine keep fresh for many years. This wine can easily be enjoyed 10 years from vintage.

FOOD PAIRING

Stuffed vine leaves with rice and raisins, or Kasseler chops with German mustard, or creamy honeycomb tripe and onions.

THE NAME

This wine is named after Cape Town’s ancient Treaty Tree still standing in Woodstock. In 1509 this wind-sculptured Milkwood witnessed the massacre by local Khoi San of 64 of d’Almeidas infamous, battle-hardened Portuguese marines, who had foolishly abducted a Khoi San baby and attempted to take the infant back to their ships waiting in Table Bay. Then in 1806 a Peace Treaty was signed beneath its boughs after the British forces defeated the Batavian Republic at the Battle of Blaauwberg.
