Flotsam and Jetsam is a project by Chris and Suzaan Alheit. It’s purpose to explore and preserve the Cape’s vinous heritage, to celebrate the underdogs and the oddities, and show that “workhorse grapes” can make lekker wine. A floral nose with tart red fruit, soft tannins with just enough grip. This wine is made to be thoroughly enjoyed, and best served slightly chilled. A favourite among leading critics for incredible value.
