Ghost Corner's wines are as extreme and intriguing as the land they come from..
Winemaker, David Nieuwoudt of Cederberg fame, crafts his range from vineyards in Elim, just inland from the dramatic coastline that gives the wines their name. This area, known as 'Spookdrai', is famed in folklore for its treacherous, unnavigable waters, responsible for wrecking hundreds of ships.
Luckily, this extreme and mysterious landscape is far better suited to winemaking than sailing. Excellent growing conditions, lime-rich soils and cooling south-easterly breezes characterise the vineyards, which give rise to some exceptional wines. These wines are powerfully concentrated, with prominent fruit and a surprising length that lingers on the palate, in David's own words, "evoking a sense of mysteries past."
Sailors call the bowline the ‘king of knots’- a knot that symbolises union, completion and eternal devotion. This blend ‘ties the knot’ between Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon. Ripe asparagus notes from the Sauvignon Blanc complements the green fig elements from the Semillon. A complex wine with well-balanced oak and a refreshing, smooth finish.
An elegant Bordeaux blend of ripe fruit aromas such as white pear and figs with a subtle layer of toasted almonds. A fresh and crisp palate with hints of well-integrated oak adding to the fullness and complexity of the wine.
Great with smoked salmon, mussels, roast chicken, a well-made vegetable soup, asparagus soup, chicken vindaloo
