In The Vineyard
Grapes are sourced from Fairtrade certified vineyards predominantly in the Swartland region. These 18 to 25 year old vineyards are trellised and grow on granite soils. The vineyards are meticulously farmed and managed to yield below 8 tons per hectare.
First week of February
Grapes were handpicked very early in the morning allowing the fruit to retain their flavor. Only the free run juice was used, allowed to settle and inoculated with selected yeast strain, fermenting under controlled conditions at 12°C.
This wine has a pale green color. The nose reminds of cut green grass, asparagus and hints of gooseberry .The palate is full and fresh with good lingering acidity.
