Drinking well now but may develop further honeyed richness for up to 3 years. Well rounded and graceful with discernible depth and balanced freshness.
in the vineyard :
A very dry winter followed by a hot, dry summer: The winter of May to August 2017 in the Cape Winelands was cold enough to ensure proper vine dormancy, but it was one of the driest in decades. A hot growing season followed. We picked at optimum ripeness to present gentle wines packed with varietal personality, grace and charm.
in the cellar :
Every vineyard block is vinified separately in appointed cellars under the explicit direction of our Oenologist. Fermentation took place in stainless steel between 14°C – 16°C. 80% fermented on French oak staves for subtle oak nuances before racking. 10% fermented on American oak and the remaining component was left completely unoaked. The young wine was left on the fine lees for further complexity and integration before final blending and bottling at our cellars in Wellington.
