  • Calligraphy

The Matriarch MCC:

60% Pinot Noir, 40% Chardonnay

A delightful glass of flirtatious bubbles mingle with kumquats, zesty naartjie, and crisp green apple
to create a delicious mouthful of flavours. Perfectly hosted by Lemon Crayfish Thermidor

The Grande Matriarch MCC:

100% Pinot Noir

Creamy fine mousse embraced by a wondrous mouthful of delectable red fruit, green apple, ruby grapefruit and zesty naartjie.
Open a bottle and pair with fresh baked butter croissants filled with smoked salmon & cream cheese.

The Golden Orb Sauvignon Blanc:

Single Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc

Bottle-aged Sauvignon Blanc at its best. The Golden Orb shows off its voluptuous, full palate with pineapple,
litchi & white peaches, and light touches of herbs and citrus. A phenomenal food wine, perfectly paired with pork fillet on a bed of creamy mushroom risotto.

Calligraphy:

46% Merlot, 24% Cabernet Sauvignon, 19% Cabernet Franc, 8% Petit Verdot, 3% Malbec

Deep, dark, and voluptuous – This full-bodied blend entices you with black currant and ripe mulberry flavours that beautifully balance the boldness of oak on the palate.
Cabernet Franc makes its presence known, giving it that spicy character. Complimented by a pairing with sirloin steak, served with wild mushrooms.

Nitida is a family-owned, boutique winery, and our tasting room, which is situated inside our barrel maturation cellar, is limited in space. We pride ourselves in giving our guests an intimate and authentic tasting experience.  In order for us to maintain our standards of service, and with our space limitation (made even less with the current social distancing protocols that we have to observe), we cannot accommodate groups, especially on weekends.

We do suggest booking your tasting on weekends, to avoid disappointment.

Our tasting room is open 7 days a week (scroll down for our trading hours).  Wines available for tasting may vary, depending on availability throughout the year.

The perfect combination of natural beauty, rustic charm and modern design awaits you at our tasting room.
Our tasting room staff are knowledgeable and experienced and will help you discover your favourite Nitida wine.
