Land of Hope: Drink Well, Do Good

Nicholas Pearce presents the South African wines of Land of Hope..

DRINK WELL, DO GOOD

2019 Reserve Chenin Blanc
Rooted in ancient decomposed granitic soils, this Chenin Blanc is from a single vineyard on an ocean-facing slope of the Helderberg Mountain in Stellenbosch. This wine shows both the exuberance of the variety in its floral notes and its nobility in a compelling mineral acidity, naturally bestowed by the site in which it is grown. Balanced and poised, it provides just enough richness to please the palate and just the right amount of zing to refresh.
 
2019 Reserve Pinot Noir
These grapes come from two adjacent vineyards of Burgundian clones 115 and 777 in the Hemel en Aarde Valley. This region grows vines which produce high quality Pinot Noir grapes, which means the wine has more depth and texture as well as presence and poise. Whole berry fermentation lifts the aromatics while also bringing supple tannins and length. Dark red fruit and subtle earthiness can be detected. This is not a Pinot for those who think that a good red wine must be black, oaky and full of tannins. This is a fragrant, bright and refreshing Pinot with wonderful succulence, expressive fruitiness and is full of character.
 
2018 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon
Top Cabernet Sauvignon is synonymous with South Africa’s traditionally most recognized wine region, Stellenbosch. This wine is from a single vineyard, rooted in magnificent decomposed granite & clay soils on the Helderberg Mountain in Stellenbosch. These ocean-facing vines produce some of the most complex fruit and individual flavours of the land, combining the geological and climatic uniqueness of this site. This Cabernet Sauvignon has depth and fullness with a plush and rounded structure and at the same has the restraint to remain elegantly poised. Amazing fruit purity in the shape of an expressive blueberry note rewards and intrigues.

SHOP LAND OF HOPE

The Land of Hope Trust is a fine South African story.
 
The name of the Trust – and the ‘Land of Hope’ labels on the wines – evoke the idea perfectly. In the ups and downs of life, hope stirs dreams and optimism.

Our friends at Radford Dale started The Land of Hope Trust in 2007, a project where the direct and sole beneficiaries are the ‘previously disadvantaged individual’ employees of Radford Dale and their children and dependents.

What makes this project unique? Well, the primary objective of the trust is educational. The long-term social upliftment through the gift of high quality education, skills development and the power of developing knowledge. The Trust is making it possible to send children to schools they could only dream about when their parents were young, which they were not allowed to attend, and which will give the next generation the intellectual ability and the expertise to ensure the positive evolution of their economy, their democracy and their community.
