A delicate pale lemon colour with tints of gold. On the nose bright notes of citrus and pear with touches of apricot and marmalade. The palate displays tinned peaches and baked pineapple. Crisp acidity on the long finish perfectly balances the sweetness.

Located in Paarl, at the foothills of the Simonsberg Mountains, Glen Carlou was established in 1985 and has been a part of the Hess Family Estates since 2003. It is run with the same dedication to quality, sustainability and social responsibility as the other Hess Estates around the world. A member of the Biodiversity & Wine Initiative (BWI), Glen Carlou, has two hectares of land dedicated entirely to the preservation of native flora and fauna. In addition to BWI, Glen Carlou also has IPW (Integrated Production of Wine) accreditation. This accreditation covers conservation, sustainability, integrated pest management, health of workers and reduction of greenhouse emissions. The estate is likewise committed to its local community and was a founding member of the Klapmuts Community Trust which provides housing benefits for permanent staff, and school children with meals.

The estate covers 145 hectares of land, of which 68 hectares are planted with vines. The vines are approximately five years old and planted predominantly in a north-west/south-east direction at an altitude of 300 metres above sea level. The vines are VSP (vertical shoot positioning) trained with two bud spur pruning. The wine is named after winemaker Arco ‘Arc Welder’ Laarman.
