Tasting Notes

Bright gold with a youthful green glow. Brimming with a fruit salad of aromas including tropical pineapple, papaya, guava and granadilla with a subtle streak of green asparagus and figs that follow through on an accommodating mouthful of sunny ripe flavours, perfectly balanced by a frisky dry finish with lingering citrus freshness.


Ageing Potential

Best enjoyed within 2 years of vintage.


Blend Information

65% Chenin Blanc, 35% Sauvignon Blanc

Food Suggestions

A fruity dry white blend that is best enjoyed well chilled for easy anytime drinking. The perfect summer sundowner, picnic or beach wine that is delicious with almost any fish or seafood, roast chicken pie, creamy pasta or soft white cheese.


In The Vineyard

A very dry winter followed by a hot, dry summer: The winter of May to August 2017 in the Cape Winelands was cold enough to ensure proper vine dormancy, but it was one of the driest in decades. A hot growing season followed.


In The Cellar

The Chenin Blanc was vinified separately in appointed cellars under the care and control of our Oenologist. Each parcel was cold fermented and left on the fine lees for added intrigue and richness. The Sauvignon Blanc was cold fermented in stainless steel before final blending and bottling at our cellars in Wellington.
