A warm welcome to Glen Carlou, situated in the heart of South Africa’s scenic Paarl Valley. The warm, dry summers and cold, wet winters of this area combine with an exciting variety of slopes and the riches of our soils to create unique winegrowing conditions. Glen Carlou was established in 1985 and since 2003 has been successfully owned and run by Hess Family Estates. To harness our farm’s vast winegrowing potential, our vines are meticulously selected in terms of rootstock and clone, while every variety is carefully chosen for its compatibility to the terroir. Yields are kept rigorously low, ensuring that nature’s gifts are distilled in the flavourful grapes that we harvest. And in the cellar our winemaker Arco Laarman and his team join forces with nature to create three distinctive wine ranges. Read less

Apple, pear and nectarine fruit scents lead the nose of this wine, with a touch of raw almond contributing a gentle nutty accent. Medium weight with great vibrancy and freshness, a lively sweet citrus core lifts the palate and remains through the close.

Full straw-yellow color. Musky lees, vanilla and nutty oak over fresh peach on the nose. Round, silky and rich, with good lift for all its oak. The flavors of peach and brown spices show good palate presence. Finishes with a dusting of oak spices.

This tasty white shows pear, fig and apple notes that are lightly toasty and well-defined, lingering with a fresh edge on the finish. Drink now.

Thereandrsquo;s a pretty elegance here accented by delicate tones of white cherry and wild blueberry, backed by soft shades of cola and spice. The wine is crisp and tight with balanced intensity overall.
