Fruity, easy on the palate and great value for money. That is the essence of Angels Tears, the easy drinking range of wines from the Grande Provence cellar in Franschhoek.
The first Angels Tears wines of the 2016 vintage – a crisp Sauvignon Blanc, a voluptuous Muscat/Chenin Blanc and a dry Rosé – have just been released. Smooth and bursting with fruit, these wines are eminently drinkable on their own but also make good food partners with simple foods, ideal for easy living and everyday enjoyment.
The Angels Tears Sauvignon Blanc 2016 is refreshingly dry but generous on the palate with layers of tropical flavours and a smidgeon of green pepper. An uncomplicated everyday companion, this Sauvignon Blanc is just what a salad, light seafood dish and grilled chicken call for.
Standing tall on the opposite side of the wine spectrum, the deliciously off-dry Angels Tears Muscat/Chenin Blanc 2016 teems with lavish honey and Muscat spice on the nose supported by tropical Chenin Blanc flavours on the palate. A real comfort quaffer, this wine stands up well to Asian foods and goes down beautifully with desserts such as a simple fruit salad.
Flaunting a seductive salmon hue, the Angels Tears Rosé 2016 is primarily Cinsaut driven imparting bountiful red berry aromas and a dry, clean and refreshing character with a lively finish. This is a refreshing wine for a light lunch and loves to play with strawberries, salads and light seafood dishes.
The Angels Tears wines are available country-wide and sell from the cellar door at R38 per bottle. For added convenience, this wine can be purchased online from www.grandeprovence.co.za. Purchases of 12 bottles or more qualify for free delivery anywhere in South Africa.
