Bayten

When you manage to get your tongue around it, Buitenverwachting (pronounced bay-ten-fur-vachk-ting) is Dutch for "beyond expectation." Today, however, locals lovingly refer to the farm as Bayten. Nestled at the base of the imposing Constantia Mountain, it's just a few miles from the azure blue of False Bay. The farm's history dates back to 1773, but in 1982, the property was extensively renovated and replanted, and now produces some of the Cape's most classical wines. Beyond expectation, indeed.

Wine Enthusiast 90 “Clean and lively, this dazzles with fresh aromas of green melon, plum and lemon curd that are accented by herbal notes of fresh-cut grass and sweet pea. The palate is prickly and nervy, with oodles of bright, mouthwatering citrus flavors and a touch of underripe peach. Drink now

Wine Spectator 92"This is refined, with a steely spine that lets gooseberry, verbena and white peach flavors streak through. A hint of shortbread adds range and mouthfeel along the edges. The long finish has lovely cut. An amazing value.”
