At the southern-most tip of Africa where the Atlantic and Indian Oceans meet, one finds the ‘Cape of Storms’. Better known as Cape Agulhas, the weather that boils up over the cold Atlantic meeting its warm Indian counterpart can be savage, with many a sailor’s voyage ending fatally upon the shallow reefs. To guide sailors away from disaster, the famous red and white lighthouse was built in 1848 and stands to this day housing a museum and restaurant. This area is also rich in archaeological discoveries from the ancient Khoi-Khoi people.
The Elim ward, that lies on this peninsular, derives its name from the Moravian Mission Station Elim - a quaint little town with thatched roof cottages the heart of which is the Moravian church. The name Elim, meaning “place of God” originates from the bible in Exodus 15:27. After crossing the Red Sea the Israelites came to Elim, where they found twelve springs and seventy palm trees, and they camped near the water. Today the town Elim symbolises the abolishment of slavery in 1834 by the British Empire.
Rich aromatics of lime, fresh pear, winter melon, hazelnuts and a touch of herbs. This intensity is continued on the palate with integrated flavours of fruit, spice and minerality; it is luxurious yet finely detailed. The elegance of the savoury finish is noticeable as the flavours very slowly fade. A delicious, elegant wine that leaves the drinker refreshed.
