Situated in the cool climate region of Elgin, this vineyard was planted in 2006 on well-drained Bokkeveld shale soils. Grapes are subjected to a long, slow ripening period that contributes to the racy acidity and concentration of flavours in this wine. Grapes were picked by hand on 5th and 19th of March, kept in cold storage overnight and whole bunch pressed. Spontaneous fermentation in neutral oak followed by 7 months maturation on the lees. Lightly filtered prior to bottling. Bottled at 13%. (Bottle size 750ml)

Nose: Inviting aromas of pear, white peaches and quince with beautiful floral whiffs of white blossoms.

Palate: Lovely fruit on entry, green apple and pears. A tight knit wine with great texture and palate weight.

Finish: Refreshing flinty minerality with balanced acidity and a touch of salinity. Lingering notes of baking spices such as vanilla and nutmeg.
