Awards, Reviews, And Other Notes:

92 points James Suckling “Aromas of white peach, sliced lemon, rosemary and lily. Medium-bodied with a silky texture. The palate begins bright and fresh, but gains in savory appeal as it goes on. Green apple comes through at the finish.”

Winemaker Notes:

This vineyard is 19 years old and was planted by David Finlayson on terraces he cut into the steepest hillside on his home (Edgebaston) property in Stellenbosch. The trellis system is low to the ground and uncommon in South Africa as it produces very low yields and small bunches. The vineyard is hand farmed and processed only with organic principles in mind. It has been a 16 year project that is now beginning to deliver the results. David – “This wine signifies something truly special to me as a winemaker and is part of my journey in life and wine in South Africa, hence the name, Camino Africana, (The African Way)”.
