The super elegant Luce restaurant at Southern Sun’s Hyde Park has selected the pioneering Wade Bales Constantia White 2018 as its preferred wine. The wine will be available exclusively within the Tsogo Sun group from the Luce restaurant for the first six months from launch.
Miguel Chan, Tsogo Sun Group Sommelier, says that after six months, selected Tsogo Sun properties with high demand for premium wines in Gauteng will be given the opportunity to offer this wine on their menus. ‘This unique collaboration of seven farms from one region, is a first in the Cape wine industry, combined with the limited production of the wine, will no doubt ensure that it will be listed at only the best dining addresses and in selected specialist wine shops.’
Bernie Hilario, GM of Southern Sun Hyde Park, says they are proud to be introducing this special wine to their guests for the six-month launch period. ‘Excellent wine is key to our food and beverage menu at Luce, which serves the finest authentic Italian cuisine fused with Japanese dishes and ocean fresh sushi, paired with a range of delicious Italian and South African wines. The new Wade Bales Constantia White as our ‘preferred wine’ is a perfect fit for our world-class offering.’
The Constantia White is a classic blend of Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon and is a collaboration of the cellar masters from seven of Constantia’s leading wine farms. Each winemaker contributed a specific component of Sauvignon Blanc or Semillon from their best vineyards, tanks, and barrels. All seven participated in the screening and blending process, which culminated in the handcrafting and bottling of a wine which is the best expression of the Constantia region.
