Introducing The GlenWood Grand Duc Noblesse

Words: Crush

Situated in the heart of the beautiful Franschhoek Wine Valley, GlenWood is home to some of South Africa’s hidden wine gems. One of these being their maiden vintage Grand Duc Noblesse – a noble wine indeed.

According to winemaker DP Burger, this dessert wine has lived up to its name and is worthy to be included in their flagship Grand Duc range. Great care and dedication was taken to create a well-integrated sweet wine with alluring nutty and honey flavours. The richness and texture of the Semillon grapes are perfectly complimented by the freshness and acidity provided by the Sauvignon Blanc. The perfect wine union!

DP and his team set out to produce a wine which has delicate similarities to the distinguished French Sauternes, something they feel they have achieved with great success. With only 1 400 bottles available, this is guaranteed to become a collector’s item, and can be enjoyed now or left to age for a further 10 to 15 years. Available directly from the Tasting Room at R220 per bottle.

GlenWood has developed from scratch over the last 30 years to become one of South Africa’s leading wine producers, and currently export mainly to European countries. The grapes sourced for their wines are all vinified on GlenWood, thereby reflecting the unique terroir of the Franschhoek Wine Valley. | Facebook | Twitter
