Grown in the cool climate Constantia Valley, all grapes were carefully hand-picked and transported to the cellar where they were cooled overnight in a specialised cooling room to 5ºC. The following morning the
whole bunches were placed in a pneumatic bag press and gently pressed recovering about 55%. The juice settled overnight in a stainless-steel tank, after which only the premium clear juice was racked off to 15% first fill 500L French Oak barrels, 40 % second and 45% third fill barrels. The fermentation temperatures were relatively low, peaking at 18ºC. During the wine’s maturation in barrel, it received a fortnightly batonage and topping up. After 6 months maturation the barrels were blended together and the wine was allowed to harmonize before being bottled.
This wine reflects a light golden hue. Sumptuous and enticing, the nose shows delightful aromas of potpourri and rose water, complimented by intriguing ripe yellow stone fruit notes. These aromas are further complimented by a zesty core of lemon and lime. Delicate floral tones and spice further develop in the glass. The mid-palate is delicious and fresh, with ripe tropical fruit, jasmine flower and spice, beautifully balanced with texture, richness and structure offered by even handed wooding. The finish is crisp and clean with distinct minerality, testimony to the wine’s cool climate origin.
