Notes

Viticulture:
A portion of the Honeybunch component was set aside for the production of this wine. Exposed bunches on the southern side of the canopy are harvested separately. The southerly aspect exposes them to the morning sun while they are sheltered from the more harsh afternoon sun. Only bunches that have turned gold are harvested.

Tasting notes:
The colour of the wine is Gold with a light haze due to phenolic compounds extracted in the skin fermentation. The nose is hit with ripe stone fruit – apricots and peaches, an orange zest. and Acacia karoo spice. Whilst the palate is nicely rounded with very light phenolic grip on the finish. The acid is polished giving the wine a plush feel which is uncharacteristic of this style.

Analysis:
Alc: 13.0% TA: 0.58 g/L pH: 3.5
