Notes from the Winemaker:

Green apricot, pear drop and tangerine fruit aromas vie for prominence on a somewhat shy nose. Appealing in its refreshing vibrancy, the mouth has ample tangy, crisp and lively nectarine and apricot flavors. The mid-palate is fleshed out by a gentle leesy fullness that adds an extra dimension as well as length.

Vineyard:
The grapes were selected from bushvine vineyards on our Riebeeksrivier property in the Swartland and also from the dryland bushvines from the Paardeberg area. The combination of these grapes gives you a full balanced wine with freshness and a very balanced natural acidity.

Winemaking:
The Chenin blanc grapes were harvested by hand at 23.5˚Balling with good harvesting conditions. The grapes were 100% crushed, followed by fermentation in stainless steel tanks. The wine was left on its primary lees in 90% stainless steel tanks and 10% in 600ℓ French oak barrels for 5 months, then bottled.

Ratings & Reviews

Wine Spectator Magazine:
"Direct, with green almond and fig notes carrying through a pure, floral-edged finish. Drink now. 15,000 cases made." – JM (May 31, 2015)

Wine Enthusiast Magazine (2013 Vintage):
"Vibrant, tart gooseberry, plum and lime aromas are upfront on the bouquet, with additional hints of sweet grass and honeysuckle dancing in the background. The palate offers bright acidity and crisp citrus flavors. Drink now." - Lauren Buzzeo (3/1/2015)
