A skin-fermented white wine made from Viognier, Chenin Blanc and Roussanne. This is a grippy, textured white wine with vinification involving the grapes remaining in contact with the fermenting juice for the duration of fermentation, and then maturation in French oak barrels for 14 months.
A very pure and honest expression of cool-climate Syrah from Elgin. Black fruit flavours underpinned by elegant spice and black pepper. Medium-bodied with good freshness, structure and persistence. This Syrah was fermented with 50% whole-bunches in small vessels and underwent 13 months of maturation in second fill French oak barrels.
Chenin Blanc from old vineyards planted between 25 and 50 years ago. Sourced from granitic soils in Wellington and Stellenbosch, this Chenin blanc displays fantastic freshness and elegance with bright yellow fruit and a long saline finish. Matured in old French oak barrels for 6 months on gross lees before bottling.
Medium-bodied with fragrant boysenberry perfume, red fruit flavours and a juicy texture. This is a fresh Rhone-style blend of Cinsaut, Syrah and Grenache. Vinification involves carbonic maceration of whole bunches prior to alcoholic fermentation, then basket pressed, followed by maturation in 3rd- and 4th-fill French oak barrels for 8 months before bottling.
