Book XVII

BOOK XVII has an opulent crème de-cassis, fruitcake and fig scented bouquet with a palate that is ostentatious. However, this full-bodied turbo-charged wine is so silky smooth and seductive in a way that its charms are impossible to resist. Previously voted as South Africa’s Best Luxury Wine, the ultra-luxurious Book XVII recently also secured itself the title as South Africa’s Highest Rated Wine Ever by the esteemed USA publisher, Wine Enthusiast Magazine.

BOOK XVII

A tribute to the viticulture wisdom, research and scrupulous documentation of ancient Roman philosopher, Pliny the Elder, this limited-edition wine, is worthy of its illustrious place on the global fine-wine podium. In the same way that Pliny stressed the significance of viticulture practices in the winemaking process, so Book XVII is the fruit of 20 years’ exhaustive recording and analysis of countless vineyard variables, from soil composition and weather conditions to oceanographic influences.
