Vriesenhof Kallista 2002

Vriesenhof Kallista 2002

KALLISTA – To Kalon Kai Agathon, derived from Plato’s statement that in life one should look for “the good & the beautiful/ noble”, is the Greek name chosen for the flagship blend of the Vriesenhof range of wines from Vriesenhof Vineyards, in Paradyskloof, Stellenbosch. 2005 marks 21 years of the Vriesenhof Kallista – although still in the barrel, we look forward to the wine ‘coming of age…’

The Kallista is a meal on its own or just have it with a simple cheese like brie.
