    Grapes are sourced from three site specific 40+ year old vineyards in Stellenbosch. 50% of the wine was fermented and matured French oak barrels to accentuate the soft, luscious flavours and the other 50% fermented in stainless steel to contribute a crisp acidity and bright citrus flavours.

    What can you expect?

    The wine offers a complex nose showing quince, white peach and yellow apple, with fenugreek spices give more dimension alongside the mineral intensity of the wine. The stone fruit character follows through onto an exceptionally balanced, very delicate and fine textured palate showing a peach-melba character with an exquisite length and freshness. The wine lingers with hints of ripe nectarine and apricot, zesty lemon and wet chalk.

    Food pairing?

    Great with South African west coast mussels / white fish with a beurre blanc sauce / spicy butternut squash soup / mild Indian curries.

    Aging potential?

    This 100% Chenin Blanc has an ageing potential of 5 to 8 years
