‘From Stellenbosch grapes. Includes just under 10% Semillon. Matured for 13 months in an old 600-litre barrel. Complex aromatics of pear, peach, lime, lemon and pineapple with notes of dried herbs and blossom in the background. Pure fruit and arresting acidity before a bone-dry finish. Linear without being skeletal. Alcohol: 13%.’ – Christian Eedes, Winemag.co.za, 93/100

‘First impression on the nose gives you sweet spice and stone fruit, with underlying lemon peel and white blossom. The citrus spectrum follows through with grapefruit and lemon aromas which offer balanced acidity. As the wine opens up, white blossom peeks out once more, resulting in an elegant finish. Pairs well with grilled tuna and creamy chicken pasta dishes.’ – Winemaker
