Nitida Sauvignon Blanc 2019, and an exciting competition…

Bernhard Veller, owner of Nitida, and Sauvignon Blanc 2019

Following its hugely successful competition, which was held in early June, Nitida Wine Estate, is launching a second competition with bigger and better prizes than ever.

Says Nitida’s Bernhard Veller: “We were delighted with our June promotion, and have had a lot of people get in touch to ask us when we will be running another competition – either because they missed the deadline for our first one or because they weren’t fortunate enough to have been one of the five lucky people to win and they want a second go.”

Veller says that the simplicity of the competition was one of the factors that made it so successful and will repeat the mechanics for their follow-up competition.

It’s only the prizes that will differ,” says Veller, “and this time we think the prizes that are up for grabs are bigger, better and will be more sought after.”

Simply put, anyone who places an order for 12 bottles or more of Nitida wine, via the farm’s website (www.nitida.co.za) or by emailing info@nitida.co.za, will automatically be entered into a draw to win one of the following:

A once-in-a-lifetime three night luxury stay for two adults at Kwandwe – the award-winning big five safari destination in the Eastern Cape. The prize includes 5-star accommodation, all meals and house drinks as well as game drives and big game walks.

News from Nitida is that from August 1st, Etienne Louw took over as Winemaker on the Estate. I know his history and have tasted his wine – expecting great things from next year’s harvest.

A pair Cape Leopards

A unique experience with The Cape Leopard Trust (CLT) as well as an overnight stay in the Cederberg for two adults. The prize winner and his/her partner will join a member of the CLT team for a unique outing in the mountains to learn more about the elusive cape leopard, their prey, their habitat and the efforts to ensure their long-term survival.

For the daring and adventurous, an exhilarating tandem jump for one adult, with a video and photographs of the experience, courtesy Mother City Skydive.

Nitida Sauvignon Blanc 2019

One of my most recent tastes of a Nitida Wine was the 2019 Sauvignon Blanc. Packed in a Burgundy shaped bottle under screw cap, the wine is elegantly labelled featuring the Protea Nitida, after which the wine is named. In the glass the wine is a bright gem like pale golden straw in colour. The aromas are ravishing. Ripe white fleshed nectarine, pawpaw and lovely white guavas poached in vanilla syrup. From entry the palate has a lovely line of acidity through the rich and generous mid palate and into the aftertaste. Brisk citrus, white flowers and a grind of white pepper ends of waning away slowly. This wine is eminently drinkable now, though will reward you amply after a year or two of cool cellaring. Best served with a tranche of hake pan fried in butter with lemon and chopped parsley and a couple of grinds of sea salt and white pepper.
