  • A beautifully layered wine with opulent fruit flavors of white peach, ripe apricot, and delicate citrus notes complemented by hints of floral and dried green herbs. The palate is rich, textured, and elegant.

The vision was to produce a great white Rhône style blend from the Breedekloof. The grapes were separately whole bunch pressed to ensure elegant extraction. Natural fermentation took place in 500 litre seasoned French oak barrels imparting layers of complexity. The blended wine was aged for 10 month on its lees, with some bâtonnage contributing to the freshness and complexity of the wine. Ageing took place in French oak of which 10% was new.

The vineyard is located on the fertile slopes of the Olifantsberg Mountain Range at altitudes from 250 metres to 450 metres above sea level. It endures harsh conditions, with wide diurnal temperature swings and strong winds. During the winter the mountain peaks are snow covered, keeping the vines dormant for longer. Cold winters, coupled with the summer winds, ensures the slow ripening of the grapes and helps to maintain healthy vines, contributing freshness and elegance to the wines. The vineyards are farmed using sustainable practices, helping to maintain the biodiversity within the vineyard and soils. The Roussanne and Grenache Blanc are young plantings on the estate and are grown on shale soils, the Chenin Blanc is grown on sandstone/shale soils, which lends freshness to the wine. The training is 'sur eschalas' in order to maximise the number of vines per hectare and to protect them from strong winds.
