The colour is pale, with a beautiful green apple tint. The nose is expressive with fresh green apple and citrus blossom notes. The palate is delicate with elegantly clean and zesty lime notes. There is a great interplay between the naturally retained residual sugar and acidity. Generally regarded as restrained, it displays typical Riesling ‘nervousness’. The mineral core, which is linked to the shale rich soils in which the vines grow, astounds. It is the reason for the wine structure and lingering after taste.

Most the grapes for this vintage came from the 31-year-old Riesling block with a small percentage from the younger blocks. The soil in the older block varies from a ‘ferricrete’ top layer (surficial sand and gravel masses) on decomposed Bokkeveld Shale and/or light clay. The younger blocks are also on duplex soils,but dominated by shale. The average gradient is 1:7 and height above sea level is 300 meters.

Food Pairing

Gorgonzola and roasted sweet potato salad with honey dressing. Pan fried prawns with paprika, toasted sesame and yoghurt dressing. Roast pork chops with pomegranate and coriander salsa.

    Love this new addition! Enjoyed the notes and went well with cheese and a creamy pasta. Perfect choice even if you aren’t a white wine lover.
