Notes

100% Colombard

Winemakers:
JD Pretorius

Viticulture:
Whole bunch pressed, setlled overnight and then fermented naturally in older French oak. Aged for 6 months before second fermentation in bottle. The wine spent 14 motnhs on the lees in bottles before disgorgement in October 2017. Zero dosage was added.

Tasting notes:
'A fresh nose of red apple and nectarine. Great acidity but light on the palate. A beautiful balancing act between the sweet fruit flavours characteristic of Colombard and the token high acidity of Lowerland's grapes.' – JD Pretorius, Winemaker
