Tasting Notes

62% Sauvignon Blanc, 28% Semillon, 10% Chenin Blanc A few words from winemaker Carl: "We aim to work with vineyards that inspire a sense of wonder and apprecation. To work with varieties that suit the growing region of Stellenbosch, producing a wine that is delicately balanced and very drinkable. Finesse and drinkability trumps power and heavy expression. Carefully made wines that are delicious, moderate in alcohol and mood lifting, enhancing the gastronomic experience and having fun whilst making great wine." The fruit for the white is selected from mountain vineyards. Wild, extreme sites that are exposed to the elements - hot sun and strong winds, producing top quality fruit showing fabulous concentration.


Press Note:

Greg Sherwood MW, 92+/100: "There is plenty of lifted aromatics and grassy lime peel, lemon grass, and dusty white peach stone fruit. The palate is full and textural, one of Carl’s winemaking signatures, with lovely round harmonious, fleshy, creamy mouthfeel. This wine has impressive gravitas for its price point and a complex, spicy granitic mineral finish with great lucidity."
