You Voetpad is made from vines planted in 1887. A mixture of gray, Palomino, Chenin and Semillon white white and Muscat, he has a very complex nose of fennel, tarragon and resinous aromas, that develops after aeration. In the mouth it is slightly spicy with a slightly syrupy texture, white a hint of pepper and a very well balanced and complex finish that lingers in the mouth.
This name means "way" in Afrikaans, a language spoken in South Africa and outcome of the Dutch. His nose develops a lovely tropical aromas of grapefruit and guava with shades of petal of rose and more traditional notes as the strawberry and cherry. It is unclear if it is new world and old world. It is a complex, balanced and unique wine.
