Annelie Viljoen (Viticulturist) The grapes were sourced from trellised vineyards in the Darling region. The dryland, unirrigated vineyards grow on northern-facing slopes in deep rich soils and produced a yield of around 8 tons per hectare.
Deon Boshoff (Cellar Master) / Elize Coetzee (Winemaker) The grapes were harvested by hand at 24° Balling at the end of February. The fruit received no skin contact in the cellar and was fermented in stainless steel tanks at 13° to 15°C. After fermentation the wine was left on the fine lees for three months to enhance texture and flavour. This wine received no wood treatment.
Colour: Clear and brilliant with hints of green. Bouquet: An abundance of tropical fruit and green apple aromas. Palate: Complex and full-bodied with a creamy texture and an explosion of green apple in the mouth.
Enjoy this wine slightly chilled on its own, or with white meat dishes, fresh seafood and salads.
