Le Belle Rebelle Mariëtte Pinot blanc
Dry White Blends (<5g/l or up to 9g/l if TA <2g/l lower) (6) Barrel fermented/barrel matured/wooded (staves, chips or wood rice) 2020 and older


A pale straw colour with a bright golden tinge. Soft fig and tropical fruit aromas such as melon and pear on the nose, as well as a lightly wooded elegance with undertones of almonds and nuttiness. The palate is loaded with stone fruit, dried apricot and a hint of ripe lemons, which culminate in a crisp acidity and long finish. A truly well-balanced beauty that makes this a winemakers’ selection.

Being such an interesting wine with out of the ordinary flavours this wine will be a chefs’ dream pairing. Thai green curry, rich matured cheeses with figs and nuts will suit the almond, nutty aftertaste. Full flavoured seafood dishes like paella, creamy mussels or kingklip will be irresistible combinations.
