Dry White Blends (<5g/l or up to 9g/l if TA <2g/l lower) () Barrel fermented/barrel matured/wooded (staves, chips or wood rice) 2020 and older
Appearance: Intriguing, light lime green hue shot through with
Bouquet: On the nose the wine jumps out of the glass with focused
aromas of asparagus, fresh thyme, gooseberry and
sweet melon. In the background, a hint of white pepper
Palate: The wine seduces your palate with a texture of creamed
honey, but the flavours are taut citrus fruit framed by a
suggestion of toasty vanilla oak. An extraordinarily
complex and satisfying mouthful.
The wine pairs amazingly well with shellfish and fish. Steamed mussels in a tomato sauce, crayfish cooked in the shell on the braai, with an olive oil and garlic basting, or even Snoek cooked on the braai, the traditional way with marmalade all go brilliantly.
