There are not enough words to describe how perfect and amazing this day was. Wedding coordinator Simone and her team gave us such a beautiful and elegant wedding. Having our family and friends there to share in our day made everything extra special. Some of our wedding plans had to change the morning of the wedding due to the weather, but we didnâ€™t even have to stress about a thing. Everything turned out even more stunning than we could have ever imagined. We would like to thank everyone who was involved in making this the most memorable day of our lives.

POLO CLUB RANGE
Polo Club Filly Rose 2012 Peaches, Apricots, Strawberries and cream on the nose. Tart fruits and bubblegum on the palate. Soft yet crisp acid, together with an alcohol of only 10.5%, makes this an ideal summer wine.
Polo Club Sauvignon Blanc 2013 Green fig, cut gras and peppers compliment the tropical flavours of gooseberry, melon and passion fruit. Crisp, yet balanced acid carries and finishes this full bodied wine.
Polo Club Chenin Blanc 2012 Ripe sweet melon and guava entices the nose. Crisp acid, minerality and rounded mouthfeel adds another dimension to this well crafted wine.
Polo Club Cabernet Franc 2011 Blackcurrants, red currants and spice fill the glass. Delicate flavours of red fruits and fynbos.
VAL DE VIE RANGE Val de Vie GVC 2008 50% Grenache Blanc, 30% Viognier, 20% Clairette Blanche Turkish delight, Citrus Zest and Wildflowers fill the glass. Fresh and zippy acidity compliments the oak, not overpowering the subtle fruit flavours. Platter **** star | Silver - IWSC
Val de Vie Ryk Neethling 2010 56% Shiraz, 20% Mourvedre, 13% Carignan, 7% Grenache, 4% Cinsaut Black currant, red fruit and spice fill the glass. Hints of vanilla and oak flavours. Well-rounded mouth feel with subtle wood influence. A medium to full-bodied wine that finishes well on the back palate.
Val de Vie Shiraz 2008 Violet flower, nuances of sweet caramel and white chocolate aromas define the diversity of a truly exceptional cultivar. These are complemented by dark fruit aromas. Platter **** star | Silver (Best in class) - IWSC
Val de Vie 1783 - 2007 50% Mourvèdre, 20% Shiraz, 15% Grenache Noir, 10% Carignan, 5% Cinsaut Wine has a deep and rich colour. On the nose you get dark fruits, perfume and warm spices. Elegance and tannins combine to give a full, yet not overpowering mouth feel, with bursts of ripe fruit and balanced oak. Acidity carries the through the whole pallet, and gives a long and lingering finish Platter **** 1/2 star | Gold - IWSC
Val de Vie 2006 60% Mourvèdre, 20% Shiraz, 7% Carignan, 7% Grenache Noir, 6% Cinsaut Deeply garnet coloured. Fresh, big sweet cassis berry with some floral nuances, and mulberry and plumy fruit flavours, rich and aromatic on new oak. The palate is lush, soft and silky. Platter ****1/2 star
