This is Groote Post winemaker, Lukas Wenztel’s own special creation, named after his matriarch born in the 1700’s, and who married the first Wenztel to arrive in the Cape. Aurelia displays very strong honey and dried apricot flavours on the nose. A full bodied palate, rounded off by displaying well integrated acid with a yeasty biscuit flavour.
The lovely golden colour is the end result of two years’ of ageing on the lees. The wine displays very strong honey and dried apricot flavours on the nose. The palate is full bodied and rounded off displaying well integrated acid with a yeasty biscuit flavour.
The 2008 Cap Classique was my first release of the Aurelia label. The name Aurelia was that of my Matriarch Aurelia Stafforinus, who married Carl David Wentzel in 1751. He was the first Wentzel to the Cape. He was from Dresden in Germany and was stationed in the Cape as Engineering Officer for the VOC (The Dutch East India Company).
