Notes

68% Chenin Blanc, 13% Clairette Blanche, 13% Verdelho and 6% Viognier

Miles Mossop Wines was established in 2004 with the vision to create wines unique in character, expressing the true nature of South Africa and the sites from which the grapes are sourced. It is a family business with Miles Mossop as winemaker and viticulturist. The wines are named after Miles and Samantha Mossop's three children.

Tasting notes:
68% Chenin Blanc, 13% Clairette Blanche, 13% Verdelho and 6% Viognier, grapes from the Swartland and Voor Paardeberg. A gorgeous nose showing white and yellow fruit, flowers and herbs. The palate is exceptionally vivid – lovely fruit purity, zippy acidity with just a touch of phenolic grip on the finish. A wine of great precision, the different components combining seamlessly.' – Christian Eedes, Winemag.co.za, 97/100

'Even more complex that Miles Mossop's Saskia-Jo bottling, partly because it contains some Verdelho and Viognier as well as Chenin Blanc and Clairette Blanche, this completed its malolactic fermentation but remains wonderfully fresh and harmonious. Long, floral and well balanced with peach, pear and citrus fruit and a hint of vanilla spice. 2019-24.' – Tim Atkin SA Special Report 2019, 95/100
