How it's made
This wine is made up of 75% Chenin Blanc and 25% Viognier. The grapes are grown on 30+ year old trellised Chenin and 15 year old Viognier from hidden corners of the Cape. In the Brede River Valley, the vineyards stretch along the lower contours of the Hex River and Langberg Mountains. The soil is mainly a Karoo type, red, lime rich soil on the higher grounds and sandy loam lower down the slopes. The climate is perfect for viticulture with the low rainfall summer months, tempered by cool afternoons and the cold winters allowing the vines to rest and to build up the reserves. Part of the Chenin Blanc is wild yeast fermented and kept on the yeast lees for as long as possible in order to achieve a long, juicy and rounded palate with a crisp fresh finish.
Grilled prawns with plenty of garlic and chili, whole lemon sole fried in butter and also delicate freshwater fish dishes.
Vibrant and aromatic with delicious subtle perfumed aromas with white peach and hints of jasmine on the nose. On the palate it has tight, white, fleshy stone fruit and fresh apricot flavors that balances the sandy texture. Bright acidity and minerality helps to deliver a delicious flavorsome and characteristic wine.
