Tasting Notes

The colour is clear and bright, with a hint of green. Clean and fresh on the nose with expressive passionfruit, grapefruit, gooseberry and black currant characteristics. These flavours follow through onto the palate which has a lovely creamy texture.

Technical Notes

15.3 hectares are under Sauvignon Blanc and vines range in age from 5 to 16 years. French and New Zealand clones have been planted providing a range of characteristic flavours including tropical fruit, fig and green pepper. The soil is predominantly Bokkeveld shale. Slopes are mostly South and South East facing. Vineyards range in height from 280m to 480m above sea level. The aim is elegance, balance and expression of terroir. Skin contact prior to fermentation is done to extract flavor and reduce acidity; duration varies. Pressing is always gentle. Only free run juice is fermented. Total time on fine lees was five months, adding richness to the wide-palate.
