Named after Rachelsfontein, a perennial spring on Boschendal, this fresh, fruity Chenin Blanc is the perfect partner for fine food and friends.
Each bottle of Klipdrift brandy is the product of the cellar master's care through every stage - fine selection of grape variety, distillation, unhurried maturation and meticulous blending.
The nose is complex and alluring, offering redcurrant, black cherry and red plum aromas with whiffs of Herbes de Provence, Cape fynbos and clay dust. The red stone fruit of the nose follows through with flavours of youngberry, boysenberry and notes of lead pencil, pipe tobacco and tealeaf on a smooth palate. Fine-grained powdery tannins contribute to a certain nervosité on the midpalate, juxtaposed against the opulence of fragrant fruit, firm acidity and smoky cedarwood undertones from integrated French oak. Vibrant berry fruit persists on a clean, focused finish.
As a line extension of Castle Lager, Castle Lite was launched in January 1994 as a new premium offering. With 25% less kilojoules than Castle Lager, it targeted consumers who were looking for a lighter, healthier drinking option.
