Grande Provence Heritage Wine Estate has scored a hat trick at the 2015 Gold Wine Awards with gold medals for no less than three of its easy-drinking Angels Tears wines.
The 2015 vintages of the Angels Tears Sauvignon Blanc, Rosé and Red all received gold medals at this annual wine competition that acknowledges great value for money wines. This year, wines priced R80 or less per bottle were tasted blind by a panel of tasters from the Cape Wine Academy and some of its graduates.
Boasting upfront fruit on the nose and palate, supported by hints of green pepper, Angels Tears Sauvignon Blanc 2015 is well-balanced with a beautiful, crisp finish. It is a great quaffer with light seafood or chicken dishes.
The harmonious blend of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon in Angels Tears Red 2015 lends a symphony of upfront red berry flavours with soft, smooth tannins, perfect for everyday enjoyment and relaxing braais or pasta evenings.
Angels Tears Rosé 2015 flaunts lively sweet strawberry flavours and a fruity finish. It is a wonderful taste partner for lightly seasoned seafood dishes and summer salads.
All three wines are available at leading wine shops nationwide and can be purchased online at www.grandeprovence.co.za. The wines sell for R35 at the cellar door.
