WINEMAKER’S TASTING NOTES
Pale straw colour. Lively tropical aromas of citrus lime and orange blossoms. Palate shows good concentration and balance with a satisfying finish. Slight oak treatment which complements the easy-drinking fruit-driven style.
VITICULTURE AND VINIFICATION NOTES
Grapes sourced from the Stellenbosch and Robertson regions. Selection of premium vineyard blocks prior to the harvest season. The Mediterranean climate of Stellenbosch as well as the warmer areas of the Robertson valley with loamy clay soil types. Vines are all trellissed on five-wire hedge system. Fruit is harvested at optimum ripeness 22 - 24ºB with a short time of skin contact and two days of settling before the start or primary fermentation.
