Rikus’s passion, experience and knowledge have made him a winemaker to watch in a country that is establishing itself as a premium wine producer. His award-winning wines are sourced from the best selected grapes the Western Cape has to offer.
The ‘Bizoe’ range is derived from the French word ‘Bisous’, meaning little kiss while Cuvée ‘Henrietta’ is named after his mum. Harvested in early morning in order to preserve the natural freshness of the grapes, the wine is then matured on it lees in oak barrels for seven months. Fresh tropical fruit and orange peel aromas. Delicate and round on the palate with toasty notes.
Highly Commended in the Wine Merchant Top 100 Awards 2020
