Dry White Varieties (<5g/l or up to 9g/l if TA <2g/l lower) () Barrel fermented/barrel matured/wooded (staves, chips or wood rice) 2021 and older


A pale straw colour with a bright golden tinge. Soft fig and tropical fruit aromas such as melon and pear on the nose, as well as a lightly wooded elegance with undertones of almonds and nuttiness. The palate is loaded with stone fruit, dried apricot and a hint of ripe lemons, which culminate in a crisp acidity and long finish. A truly well-balanced beauty that makes this a winemakers’ selection.

Being such an interesting wine with out of the ordinary flavours this wine will be a chefs’ dream pairing. Thai green curry, rich matured cheeses with figs and nuts will suit the almond, nutty aftertaste. Full-flavoured seafood dishes like paella, creamy mussels or kingklip will be irresistible combinations.
