Profile


TASTING NOTES

Bright and exuberant flavours of orange blossom, pineapple and nartjie are prominent upfront with more delicate aromatics of dried apricot, toasted brioche and vanilla pod show on the mid-palate. Refreshing zesty acidity is prominent from entry all the way to the long zesty finish.


WINEMAKER NOTES

Specifically, selected Stellenbosch sites, 2 on the Helderberg that add more freshness and acidity to the wine and one form Warwick on a warmer West facing slope on the Simonsberg, adding textural elements to the wine. All three vineyards are picked separately at different ripeness levels to add complexity. Whole bunch pressed and the juice allowed to clear naturally before transferred to 228L Burgundian French oak barrels for fermentation, all-natural yeast. Barrels are rolled once a month for nine months before a tight selection process and blending early in 2019. Light filtration before bottling in February 2019.


Food Recommendations

Grilled Pork tenderloin glazed in apricot marmalade served with creamy cannellini beans and a herb salad. Glazed butternut Gnocchi with sage cream sauce and toasted seeds.
