Colour: Light yellow with a tinge of green
Nose: Showing concentrated stone fruit and defined citrus notes
Palate: The palate is full, yet remains delicate with a fresh finish and a persistent sea breeze salinity. A beautiful expression of well-balanced fruit with a fresh and acidity. There is a layered complexity and a sense of place that shines through in a balanced and nuanced fashion.
The grapes were sourced from a rare single vineyard bush vine block in the Stellenbosch region. The location of this vineyard is being kept a secret due to the scarcity of the grapes.
The grapes were hand harvested at 22.5 balling and delivered in small lug boxes to the cellar. The grapes were whole bunch pressed and fermented naturally in barrel. After fermentation the wine was racked and matured in French barrels for 14 months. The wine did not undergo malolactic fermentation to keep its freshness and primary fruit flavours. The wine was not protein stabilised, cold stabilised or filtered.
