Tasting Notes

This has lovely varietal expression - taut and leafy but also brambly, bright and succulent.

In the vineyard

Sourced from vineyards that border the warm Wellington and Swartland regions. The vines are older - 25 years old and this along with lower yields of 6-8 tonnes/ha all help to produce flavoursome, concentrated fruit.

In the winery

This wine is unoaked and we seek to capture pure varietal expression. Small concentrated berries are destemmed upon arrival at the winery. Fermentation on the grape skins at 23°C, Pump-over twice daily to wet the cap and aerate the fermenting wine. Wine is fermented down to 5°B and pressed. Pumped back into stainless steel tank to ferment to dry. This ensures soft tannins and no-over extraction of any harsh tannins. Malo-lactic fermentation follows. The wine is kept on the fine lees up to bottling.

Food Recommendations

Grilled red meats, roast lamb.
