Notes

Elegant clean wines are the hallmark of the Migliarina brand. All wines are individually hand crafted from some of the best vineyards in the Cape region with exceptional care being taken in preserving varietal and fruit character. Keeping it simple in the cellar with minimum intervention is the basis for ensuring that the wines are fruit driven and elegant.

Tasting notes:
'The colour is light yellow with a tinge of green. On the nose is a touch of vanilla with lime and pistachio. The wine has a hint of oak and fresh acidity with a long lingering finish.' – Carsten Migliarina, Winemaker

Viticulture:
The grapes were sourced from two different vineyards in Elgin specifically for its cool climate and good acidity. The wine was bottled on the 31st July 2017 and only 6895 bottles were produced.

Vinification:
The grapes were hand harvested at 23 balling and delivered in small lug boxes to the cellar. The grapes were then whole bunch pressed, a portion was fermented in tank and 60% fermented naturally in barrel. The total volume 100% was matured in 1st, 2nd and 3rd fill French, Romanian and Hungarian oak barrels for 11 months. The wine did not undergo malolactic fermentation to keep its freshness and primary fruit.
