A word about a special wine made by Ron Gault & Charlayne Hunter Gault…Passages.
“Our passages through life have been often serendipitous, many times sweet, and always soul-satisfying. We have drunk from the waters and the wines of the world, settling in South Africa, where its people have enhanced our taste for all things good. Our wine, Passages, speaks to our embrace of new people, places and things, and our desire to share the joy of our ongoing journey to the horizons”.
The grapes are sourced from the Stellenbosch region in the Western Cape. This is an area known for it’s fruit and winemaking. This coastal region in the Western Cape is ideal for grape growing and is singled out perennially for the quality of it’s fruit.
Ernst Gouws is the wine maker. He comes from a winemaking tradition and is highly respected for his wine making skills. His red and white wine have won numerous awards on the International wine stage.
Tasting Notes: This grape is full of rich succulent chocolate and black berry fruit with herbaceous undertones. Full bodied and firm, this wonderfully made wine has harmonious structure ending in layers of velvety tannins.
Pairing Notes: This wine goes well with lightly spiced dishes, Mediterranean dishes, BBQ, and gumbo.
