  • A fresh and pungently aromatic Viognier with peach, apple, and vanilla flavours and a black pepper note on the finish. This beautifully styled Viognier shows citrus and orange peel aromas layered with enticing peach, mango, and delicate floral notes. It has a well-integrated, rich palate with a creamy mouthfeel and a fresh, lingering finish.

The fruit was harvested from a single vineyard at optimal phenolic ripeness. The grapes were crushed, and the juice was fermented in stainless steel tanks at controlled temperatures of 12.5°C, lasting for 12 to 14 days. Twenty percent was barrel-fermented in older oak and left on the lees for six months, where it matured in used 225-litre French oak barrels before being filtered and bottled.

Winery

The Swartland name originates from a description of the Indigenous "reposters" or rhino bush, which appears to turn black ("Swart" in Afrikaans) during the summer months. This hot, dry climate has an average temperature range of 25°C to 35°C and an annual rainfall of 450 mm and 600mm, but the altitude of these vineyards creates a cool oasis in this arid landscape. Minimal intervention and environmentally friendly farming practices are paramount. Sowing cover crops between the vines protects them from the winter rains and maintains their valuable mineral content, nutrients, and moisture during the hot summers. 80% of the vineyards are small bush vines with an average yield of six tonnes per hectare; the fruit quality is exceptional. The soil types vary, but Malmesbury Shale dominates, with small patches of granite and Table Mountain sandstone.
