Description

Four different vineyards from the Stellenbosch region were used to make this wine. The Chardonnay grapes were hand harvested from two South Westerly facing vineyards on Zevenwacht (Polkadraai Hills). The Viognier and Chenin were hand harvested from two North-facing Vineyards on Zevenrivieren (The Banhoek valley). All four vineyards are lying at altitudes that range from 300-500 meters above sea level; these higher elevated slopes tend to give the blending partners a beautiful natural acidity, resulting in a pleasant pungency. The richness and full-bodied fruit in the wine has been accentuated by the open canopies of the vineyards during ripening. All these flavours are backed with a flinty minerality from the decomposed granite soils of the Polkadraai hills. The soils include desirable clay elements that retain moisture during the drier months of ripening, yet, as a result of the prominent gravel fractions, allow for excellent drainage.



Grapes: Chardonnay, Viognier, Rousanne and Chenin Blanc



Ripe and exotic, a distinctive, spicy wine that is rich and subtly oaked, with a slight aroma of roasted almonds. The Chardonnay gives superb lime-citrus flavours; the Viognier lends a delicate perfume of dried peaches and apricots while the Chenin acts like salt and pepper, spicing things up!!
