Twee Jonge Gezellen
Twee Jonge Gezellen Review
If you stand in front of the church on Van der Stel Street, you will see a wine barrel indicating the road to Twee Jonge Gezellen, which is about 8 km (5 mi) from town. One of the finest and oldest wineries in the area, it's a family-run estate best known for its fantastic Cap Classique—Krone Borealis Brut. But many Capetonians are more familiar with the old, tried, and trusted TJ39, an easily drinkable, well-priced blend of weisser (white) Riesling, chardonnay, chenin blanc, and sauvignon blanc that has been making a regular appearance on local tables for years. The Krone Engeltjipipi (referring to—er—a certain body waste of little angels) is a blend made from grapes naturally infected with botrytis (a type of fungus) and considered a gift from the cherubs. The grapes are harvested by hand over a number of nights at the end of the season.
