Fresh, tangy varietal fruit with perfumed jasmine notes and white stone fruit flavours. There is real breadth and character on the palate and a refreshing finish. Fruit is sourced from long-established vineyards on the Wellington/Swartland borders, an area of low rainfall and mainly decomposed granite soils. The vines are low-trellised and the grapes are picked by hand in the early hours of the morning to retain their freshness.
Grapes are chilled on arrival then pressed and the juice settled in tank prior to fermentation. We keep the wine on its fine lees for as long as possible prior to bottling. There is no oak treatment.
