Stellar is situated at Kys Halte just outside Vredendal, Western Cape, which borders Namaqualand, an area famous for its spring flowers and the only semi-arid biosphere hotspot in the world.
The cellar sources organic grapes from a number of independent farms. Workers on the farms and in the winery, including seasonal workers, own 26% of the enterprise through shares in the Stellar Empowerment Trust.
Granadilla, lime, guava and grapefruit on the nose, Smooth round palate with well balanced acidity. A lovely wine.
Very versatile - try with salads, roast chicken, salmon baked in paper or prawns in garlic.
