The story of this wine
An exciting white Cape blend with layered flavours of stone fruit, minerality and citrus complemented with gentle oak. The wine is beautifully balanced, with a full rich mouth feel and a bright long finish.
The wine has bright exotic flavours and goes with seafood, pork and chicken dishes, especially those with a South East Asian feel. It is also lovely with southern French cooking.
Grapes sourced from a number of vineyards in Paarl, Stellenbosch and in the Swartland.
The grapes were handpicked and whole-bunch pressed and barrel fermented. Both wild and commercial yeast strains are used. Southern French/ Rhone white blends serve as inspiration for this wine.
This wine is drinking well now, however will continue to improve over the coming few years.
