Seven Sisters Odelia 2008 Boukettraube
Odelia is a naturally sweet wine rich with honey flavor yet perfectly balanced by high acidity and floral aromas. Made from 100% Bukettraube grapes (pronounced Bu-ke-traw-bah), South Africa is one of the few wine-producing countries in the world to bottle this fine wine – a fitting tribute to Odelia’s distinctive style!

Grapes come from unirrigated bushvines with yields of between 7 and 8 ton/ha. Hand harvested at optimum ripeness at 24°B. All grapes are crushed and skin contact of 4 hours are allowed to extract the flavours. Light bag press follows and the cleaned juice is fermented to retain maximum aroma. At required sugar level the fermentation process is stopped to produce a well balanced, natural sweet wine.
