Grown up doesn't mean boring! The 2017 rendition of our favourite Papegaai has more depth and layers - a crunchy poached and dried pear, quince, and lemon biscuit number. For those not familiar with bushvine Palomino (and when it's not made in to sherry,) it offers stunning subtle aromas of salted green apples - very fine and nuanced.


Tasting Notes

Whereas previous vintages have been cheekily fruity, exuberant and bouncy, the 2017 is a little more grown up and sophisticated. The chubby red cheeked child has returned from the school holidays with a new jacket, skinny jeans and they've started smoking roll ups and begun "dating." 88% Chenin Blanc, 12% Palomino, with the fruit from the amazing old Kalmoesfontein vines on the Paardeberg mountain. It's still charming, just a little more grown up.
