The Aaldering Florence White was produced by Marianne & Fons Aaldering’s aspiration to produce one of South Africa’s best vegan wines began to come into fruition in 2004 when they bought a 24-hectare estate in Devon Valley, Stellenbosch. This was the birth of Aaldering Vineyards & Wines, a company focused on delivering premium quality wines to wine lovers all around the world. Over the years a devoted team was gathering which characterises itself as being young, professional, dynamic and international.
The Florence range was introduced to offer exciting and youthful blends that can be enjoyed regularly. The range was named after the only granddaughter of Marianne & Fons, Florence. From the Latin name Florentius or the feminine form Florentia, which also means ‘’prosperous’’ and ‘’to blossom’’. 2016 Harvest was the driest in over a century in South Africa. Extremely challenging, especially for white varieties. With very little rain throughout the season irrigation management was of utmost importance.
The Aaldering Florence White is a melody of tropical fruit with notes of fresh cut grass and lime. This crispy Sauvignon Blanc – Chardonnay blend is supported by a well-rounded palate with superb length and minerality.
