The Icarus blends represent the pinnacle of blending craftsmanship in the Bergsig wine portfolio.
The Icarus Range, named after the soaring mythical Greek character, is a reflection of the mountain peaks that surround the estate combined with the Lategan family’s passion for flight, and the driving pursuit of excellence that pervades Bergsig’s wines, from vine to bottle.
A rich, creamy full-bodied wine blended from three different varietals: Chardonnay, Chenin Blanc, and Weisser Riesling. The Chardonnay and Chenin Blanc were fermented in small oak barrels, left on the lees, and matured for 12 months. The Weisser Riesling was tank-fermented in a flinty style.
This exceptional blend is hand-selected from the best Cabernet Sauvignon, Touriga Nacional, and Merlot barrels. Matured in 300 liter French and American oak barrels for 20months, with opulent plums, black cherries, cigar box, and vanilla notes. Vibrant and elegant with beautiful weight and length, leaving you with a lasting impression.
