Catalina has landed along with a new Vinography Range

The long-awaited SA 2019 Platters five-star achiever, Benguela Cove Catalina Semillon 2017, was launched with great fanfare at the Benguela Cove Lagoon Wine Estate this past weekend. Following suit was the estate’s new artisan range, Vinography, sharing the platform with the estate’s latest vintage releases. The tasting was ruled by a distinguished 2017 vintage, the year in which the wine cellar was completed, celebrating a huge milestone for Benguela Cove, near Hermanus
Trade and media guests had the opportunity to discover the wines during a tutored tasting hosted by awarded winemaker and cellar master, Johann Fourie. Guests were then invited to discover the premises and state of the art wine cellar with a treasure hunt, taking them on another tasting journey of the Lighthouse Collection. While hunting for wine treasure, guests could also enjoy a miniature lighthouse exhibition in the cellar. These are true replicas of lighthouses in full operation along the South African coastline, created by local lighthouse expert, Jan Smith.
