Grapes were sourced from an Elgin farm with Bokkeveld Shale soils that are 70% gravel. Wine did not go through malolactic fermentation so as to maintain minerality and freshness but has 10 month lees contact, with regular battonage, giving it a round mouth feel despite the minerality. Matured in 23% new French oak barrels, 52% 2nd-fill barrels and balance split between noblot and foudre. Bottled at 13.5%. (Bottle size 750ml)

Nose: A delicate and elegant citrus and white peach bouquet.

Palate: Wooded and sophisticated well balanced flavours throughout the palate. 

Finish: Medium lasting, clean finish.

The Epicurean project was started by Mutle Mogase Mbhazima Shilowa Ron Gault and Moss Ngoasheng and the wine is vinified at Rupert & Rothschild by winemaker Schalk-Willem Joubert. With a clear mandate to make wines that offer elegance over brute power, the Epicurean is produced from vineyard parcels that are earmarked with their elegant aesthetic in mind.
