The Fledge & Co Vagabond White
a.k.a GeelSlang – Unapologetically individual, independently minded, a dapper ruffian with a heart of gold and deserving the moniker, Vagabond. This fifth vintage sees a radical departure towards the future, with Chardonnay forming the spine around which the aromatic rogue Rhone Viognier, combines with old bush vine Steen, exotic Verdelho & a blast from the past in the rare Hungarian Hárslevelü- fully skin fermented as one would a red. Hand crafted old skool, barrel fermented& matured in old oak barrels. Generously fulsome, yet zesty, elegant & complex this vintage makes an ideal foil for mild Cantonese and Cape Malay cuisine; soft fromage or grilled duck breasts with citrus salad. Friends affectionately call this wine the GeelSlang, Afrikaans for the resplendently golden yellow Cape Cobra, a beguiling beautiful reptile with a vicious strike.
