Location: Wine of Origin Western Cape
R270.00
An Overview

Inviting flint and mineral aromas, with fresh lemon blossom and grapefruit nuances. A delicate composition of lemongrass and lightly roasted macadamia nut.

Tasting Notes

A luminous white gold colour with delicate fragrances of honey blossom, lemongrass and white peach. The palate delivers flavours of zesty lemon, gooseberries and raw almonds slivers with a lingering finesse. This wine will pair superbly with crispy squid tubes and tenticles, charred grapefruit segments, lime yoghurt and shaved fennel.

In the Cellar

Free-run juice from gentle whole cluster pressing was used for this wine. Eleven months of maturation occurred in the primary fermentation vessels; 15% in concrete eggs, 20% in foudres and the remainder in 300L French oak barrels of which one third were new barrels.

The grapes were hand-picked from the middle of February to the middle of March 2019 with an average yield of 8 tons per hectare.
