Marked by seductive oak aromas and flavors, this brings out peach and quince details midpalate, followed by hints of fleur de sel and clove. Vibrant and balanced, revealing accents of pine on the finish. Drink now through 2024. 3,750 cases made, 163 cases imported.
4 ½ Stars 2020 Platter’s South African Wine Guide
Nutty, toasty notes dominate 18 (91 pts) in youth (43% new barrels), but there’s plenty of sweet fruit & a serious acidity in the balance on the palate, which is rich, lemony and nicely dry. More forceful than the 12.9% alcohol would suggest.

Winemaker Notes

Very bright, polished platinum with green, vivacious hue. Complex, appealing nose with pear, citrus and floral notes developing into lemon cream, oatmeal and marzipan richness. On the palate the wine is medium bodied and linear but retains generous focused citrus fruit flavours with sleek, balanced and crisp acidity. The wine remains vivacious and fresh on the finish with clean citrus fruit and stony minerality. The wine has a long, very pleasant lingering finish. Decanting and exposure to air opens the aroma and palate of the wine
