Tasting Notes
This golden wine with fresh, green tones is in a lighter style, clean yet unctuously sweet. Sumptuous peach, apricot flavours, overlaid with a tropical lushness of melon and pineapple. Ripe sweetness, yet tangy, with sweet and sour zip, wood spice on the finish.

"It has so much class and breeding that it never once breaks into full on sweetie mode, preferring to hint and tempt with flashes of honey and tropical fruit and then moments of crunchy nut and brittle toffee - rapture!" - Matthew Jukes' Top 50 from Cape Wine 2008

In The Vineyard
Soil: High clay and slit - Westley
Yield: 2 tons/ha
Locality: south-south-west
This rich, unctuous wine is the product of old Chenin Blanc bushvines which start their autumn days in a morning mist.
About The Harvest
The late season humidity brings on a natural botrytis and we harvest the vines 4 or 5 times to maintain a perfect natural acid balance with the sweetness, creating a wine of exceptional finesse and balance.
