Description

Neethlingshof is perhaps the oldest wine estate in Stellenbosch. Grapes have been grown on Neethlingshof for more than 300 years or within 50 years of the Dutch East-India Company establishing a victualing station at the Cape to supply its passing ships.

Clear, luminous with green tints. Ripe figs and gooseberries. Fresh and crisp with a lingering aftertaste of tropical fruits. This full-bodied, complex wine with its racy acidity has the capacity to age for at least two years if correctly cellared. Savour solo or enjoy with poultry, seafood or salads. 14.2% South Africa, Stellenbosch

The Jackals Dance refers to the name originally given to the property, The Dance of Wolves. However it is understood that the Jackals were mistaken for wolves.
