Named after the scientific name for an African wild dog Lycaon Pictus, meaning Wolf in Greek and Painted in Latin, Painted Wolf Pictus VI 2017 consists of 43% Grenache Blanc, 37% Chenin Blanc and 20% Viognier. Grenache Blanc was produced by the Foundry in Stellenbosch and Chenin Blanc grapes were grown on two sites in the Agter Paarl and Viognier from Kasteelsig Vineyard. The Chenin Blanc and Viognier grapes were hand-picked into small baskets and whole-bunch pressed before being barrel-fermented with wild yeast in 500-litre barrels of various ages and left on the lees for nine months. A total of 7,000 bottles were produced. Bottled at 13%. (Bottle size 750ml)

Palate: Nice richness and texture on entry. Lovely sweet fruit notes such as pear. Tropical fruits like mango.
Finish: Beautiful clean acidity on finish. Refreshing notes of lime and orange zest.
