R150 / 750ml
Citrus blossom, lime and hints of oak on the nose with a steely and crystalline intensity on the palate, this wine will reward those with patience. The palate is tightly structured, medium plus acidity and enough body to enable ageing for 5 to 8 years. Well paired with lightly curried dishes, Thai fish cakes, chicken and smokey pork dishes.
Grapes are hand harvested from 23 year old vines from the Southern slope of the Kanonberg mountain. The bunches are pressed whole and then left overnight with enzyme. After removing from the lees, the juices are innoculated with selected yeast strains to begin fermentation in concrete tanks. As soon as fermentation starts, the wine is moved to 40% new and 60% second fill French oak barrels, where it is left to ferment for 11 months before bottling.
