  • Sauvignon Blanc
  • Semillon
  • Riesling
  • Pinot Noir
  • Merlot
  • Cabernet Sauvignon

Sauvignon Blanc:

A whimsical composition of white peaches, passion fruit, and blackcurrant intertwine with orange, apricot, and granadilla,
adding to your ever-growing curiosity to discover the hidden layers of its full mouth-feel. Divine when paired with classic, creamy Cordon Bleu.

Semillon:

Eyes closed, you’ll imagine freshly baked scones, topped with melted butter and marmalade. The rich, creamy, gorgeous mouth-feel
is enhanced by yellow hay, orange peel & dried apricots. Excellent with wok-fried prawns in a lemon butter sauce on a bed of risotto.

Riesling:

Turkish delight and jasmine invite you to further explore this stunning wine. The classic Riesling nose evokes fond memories
of grans’ fresh-out-the-oven cookies with Renosterveld honey and orange zest on the finish. Best enjoyed watching the sunset savouring satay chicken kebabs.

Pinot Noir:

Feminine, elegant, silky indulgence. Raspberries, mulberries & ripe strawberries captivate your senses,
while rose petals make a subtle appearance. Brilliantly hosts roast duck with plum coulis.

Merlot:

An indulgent affair as caramel & sticky toffee rendezvous with rich dark fruit and raspberries.
Celebrate this wine on its own or pair it with roast duck and a cherry reduction.

Cabernet Sauvignon:

Traditional expectations are effortlessly met by a blend of luscious dark red fruit and cigar box aromas. This cold-climate Cabernet Sauvignon spent 18 months on oak, creating an experience of contrasts with each sip. Add a family stroll through the dense forest & finish with wild mushroom beef wellington topped with a cranberry wine reduction.

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
