The nose is dominated by the aromatics of Viognier and Semillon – apricots and Turkish delight from Viognier, fresh herbs from Semillon, with a hint of cedar from barrel-maturation. The entry on the palate is rich (attributed to partial MLF), with the palate being similarly perfumed and rounded off with touches of cinnamon and toasty oak.

An ideal companion for creamy soups and rich white meat dishes.

in the vineyard : Altydgedacht is a 365 hectare estate that has been in the Parker family since 1852. Brothers John and Oliver and their teams utilize the Durbanville microclimate to its fullest to produce wines with distinctive varietal expression. Dry-land vineyards with Hutton soils and trellised hedges.

about the harvest: The grapes were hand-picked in the cool morning hours at varying sugar levels, since the component cultivars have different ripeness levels at which they display optimum cultivar characteristics.

in the cellar : After harvest, the grapes were cooled overnight to 10 ºC prior to vinification. The grapes were subsequently sorted, de-stemmed, crushed, pressed and allowed to cold settle over two days. The juice was pumped to barrel and fermented separately. 20% new French oak was used. The cultivars were matured separately for 6 months, before blending and aging for an additional 5 months.
