wine_scaramanga-2010_2

Nabygelegen Scaramanga, Wellington, South Africa (2010 Cabernet Sauvignon – Merlot 750ml) Wellington Is A Ward Of The Wine-Producing District Of Paarl, In The Western Cape Province Of South Africa. Located 45 Minutes’ Drive North-East Of Cape Town, The Historic Town Of Wellington Lies On The Banks Of The Kromme River, At The Foot Of The Groenberg Mountain.

The Limietberg And Hawequa Mountain Ranges Are Nearby. Wine Has Been Made In This Area Since The 1700s, When Huguenot Settlers Brought Their Winemaking Traditions With Them From Europe. The Town Itself Was Named After The Duke Of Wellington By The Governor Of The Cape, Sir George Napier (Coincidentally, The Town Of Napier In Hawkes Bay, New Zealand Is Named After Napier’s Brother Charles).

The Prevailing Mesoclimate Here, Combined With A Range Of Excellent Soils, Means That Wellington Is Capable Of Producing Top-Quality Red Wines (Predominantly From Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinotage & Syrah) Along With Whites Such As Chenin Blanc, Sauvignon Blanc And Chardonnay
