An elegant, refreshing and fruit driven wine. packs an aromatic punch (green grass, fig leaf) and delivers on the palate with racy passionfruit acidity, bone dry finish for characterful summer sipping.

The grapes for this wine are from vineyards predominantly facing in a South Westerly direction. These slopes overlook False Bay, Cape Point and Table Mountain and enjoy the benefit of the cooling sea breeze, whilst getting good sunlight exposure to ensure optimal ripeness.


Vinification

The grapes were fermented in stainless steel tanks at cool temperatures to enhance tropical fruit ester production. Each tank was stirred on its gross lees on a weekly basis for 4 months after which it was racked and blended.

This is a wine to enjoy with fresh summer food, salads, seafood and poultry. Use your flair to discover your favourite combinations.
