To infinity and beyond.

Infiniti Noble Late Harvest 2012 from Stellenbosch Vineyards working with Vanessa Fogel Design was one of only two wines to win gold at the recent Wine Label Design Awards. What did the panel like so much about the packaging? The distinctive bottle shape, the intricate main label, the “flag” around the neck – all done with careful consideration making for something particularly beautiful.

The wine itself is pretty smart, too. A blend of Chenin Blanc and Muscat de Frontignan, the nose shows a heady sort of end-of-season blossom, dried apricot and honey. It’s super-concentrated on the palate but thankfully there’s zippy acidity to prevent it from becoming cloying. A decadent affair, it costs R140 per 375ml bottle.

Score: 88/100.
