Annelie Viljoen (Viticulturist) Sourced from low yielding bush vines in the Perdeberg area to ensure concentrated flavours in the berries. The vines are grown on slopes facing in a westerly direction, in medium deep shale, granite and sandstone soils and irrigated only when necessary.
Deon Boshoff (Cellar Master) / Elize Coetzee (Winemaker) Harvested by hand in mid-February at 23° Balling. The grapes were fermented in a single stainless steel tank at 13.5°C. After fermentation the wine was left on the primary lees and stirred occasionally to enhance the complexity on the palate.
Colour Green with golden tints. Bouquet Tropical fruit and asparagus aromas with just a hint of grassiness. Palate Complex and full bodied taste with a creamy texture that lingers on after every sip.
Best served slightly chilled with shellfish or chicken dishes and vegetable pâté.
