This is an ELGIN white blend that represents the rocky outcrops of Valley Road. It's a blend of mostly Riesling, Semillon and a bit of Sauvignon blanc.
In 2010, I took part in a surf contest, the Anual Vintners Surf Classic in Stilbay, situated on the east coast of South Africa. Only surfing-winemakers/viticulturists/grape producers are allowed to compete. And believe it or not, we are almost 40 contestants every year. That specific year, I met a guy called Dok Gary van Wyk. A surfing-doktor-part-time-farmer and we tasted a wine that someone made for him making use of the grapes grown on his farm. I loved the wine and asked him if I could pay him a visit. And that is how DOK began. In Valley Road, Elgin, DOK Gary farms with Riesling, Semillon and Sauvignon blanc. The 3 vineyards aren't very big and grow on top of a rocky mountainous outcrop in red rocky clay soil. I started making wine from the grapes and this is the second vintage. This wine is representative of that little rocky outcrop in Elgin - mostly Riesling with a portion of Semillon and Sauvignon blanc.
The wine is fresh, but full bodied, something that can be aged. Made in a natural way, no additives. Just a very small amount of sulphur. A wine that will be around each year. Enjoy!Technical InformationVintage: 2013How to order
