Annelie Viljoen (Viticulturist) The grapes were sourced from trellised (90%) and bush vines (10%) in the Stellenbosch and Darling areas. Situated at altitudes ranging between 100 m to 500 m above sea level, these vines grow mainly in deep red soils with some sandy loam on mainly south-facing vineyard slopes.      
Deon Boshoff (Cellar Master) / Elize Coetzee (Winemaker) The grapes were harvested by hand, from early February to mid-March, at 21,5° to 24° Balling to offer a spectrum of ripeness from green and grassy to fuller, more tropical flavours.
Colour Clear and bright with a greenish tint. Bouquet Lots of green pepper and fig aromas infused with some tropical passion fruit flavours. Palate Intensely flavoured with good structure. The flavours mature to asparagus-like aromas. Nice crisp acidity on the palate with a lingering aftertaste.
Enjoy this wine slightly chilled on its own, or with fresh herb salads, white meat dishes such as chicken risotto and pork chops, or seafood.
