R450.00 R360.00

Tasting Notes:

Liquid gold in colour. A warm inviting nose of dried nectarines, hay bales and toasted hazelnuts greets the nose. With aeration comes notes of citrus, vanillin’s from the seasoned oak and elderflower which adds complexity. Beautiful fruit with rounded tannins gives excellent mouthfeel with clear cut acidity. A complex wine that cries out for enjoyment with a range of dishes.

 

Suggested Food Pairing:

A variety of dishes including pan seared hake with roasted cherry tomatoes and fresh edamame beans with a light citrus dressing. Casseroled rabbit with a soupcon of truffle oil.

Description

Winemaking Practice:

The four grape varieties used were individually harvested at full ripeness. After being lightly crushed the grapes were allowed skin contact for 8-12 hours after which they were pressed and allowed to settle overnight in tank. The following day the juice was racked to seasoned barrels with a percentage of lees added to initiate wild fermentation. After fermentation the individual barrels were given a sulphur dose to protect against spoilage and oxidation. The lees in the barrels were stirred on a weekly basis to give complexity to the wines. After the appropriate ageing time in barrel, the wine was taken out, blended and fined before being bottled. The wine has spent a certain time in bottle before being released to give added complexity to the wine.
