Two maiden vintages complement award-winning survivor range

Survivor, the award-winning wine range from Overhex Wines International released two new wines, the 2016 Survivor Wild Fermented Chardonnay, as well as the Survivor Méthode Cap Classique Brut 2011, complementing the existing well-admired range in style and variety.

Named after a Nguni cow, the Survivor range of wines boast an impressive array of local and international acclaim. The Nguni, now known as “Survivor” accidently found her way to a farm situated in the Swartland area, by jumping truck as she passed by. She miraculously survived her injuries and today these wines pay tribute to this extraordinary cow, as well as the generous spirit and unique terroir of the Swartland, where the grapes are sourced from.

Says Gerhard van der Wath, Managing Director at Overhex Wines International, “This wine portfolio is going from strength to strength. The brand has a quirky uniqueness to it making it extremely popular locally and abroad. The addition of the Chardonnay and Brut MCC is timeous and fitting.”

The 2016 Survivor Wild Fermented Chardonnay is a barrel-fermented wine that rewards oatmeal and lime on the nose with layers of citrus on the palate while boasting excellent oak integration. The grapes were sourced from a selection of low-yielding (6-7 t/ha) vineyard Chardonnay where the soils are deep red Oakleaf and Hutton ensuring excellent water-retention and adding structure and fullness to the wines.

The grapes for the Survivor Méthode Cap Classique Brut 2011 were sourced from low yielding blocks with chalky soils. The wine is rich and full fl¬avoured with a distinctive toastiness, as well as some citrusy freshness. It is stylish and sophisticated with an abundance of fruit like crisp lemon, herbs and an apple complexity. It’s dry and savoury with a complex, refined fizz.

The Survivor range comprises six wines, the 2015 Survivor Pinotage, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2016 Chenin Blanc, the 2016 Sauvignon Blanc, as well as the newly released 2016 Chardonnay and Brut MCC.

“Survivor has set a standard for Overhex Wines International in terms of branding and future creations. We are excited to see how these two additions follow in the successful footsteps of their predecessors,” Van der Wath concludes.

The Survivor Sauvignon Blanc and Chenin Blanc are R110 a bottle and the Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon and Pinotage are R150 a bottle. The limited Méthode Cap Classique Brut is R240 a bottle.
