THE VINEYARDS

Grapes were sourced from the Cape Town region where maritime climatic conditions ensure slow ripening of grapes and delicate fruity wines. The cooler temperatures due to oceanic winds and the long hours of sunlight as the sun sets into the ocean, delivers healthy, aromatic grapes.

 

THE WINEMAKING

The grapes were picked from end of January until mid-February between 20 - 21°Balling. In the cellar the grapes were crushed and drained under a blanket of dry ice to preserved the typical delicate flavours. The juice was floated and cold fermented at 14 - 15°C, followed by extended contact with the lees for almost two weeks to enhance the mouth-feel. After vinification the wine was blended and bottled.

 

TASTING NOTES

Taste: The wine is fresh with a crisp acidity showcasing lime, citrus, tropical fruit that ends in a sweet sensation.
