The wine has an alluring bright gold colour with a beautiful, inviting nose filled with ripe tropical fruits along with peach, pear, kumquat and a hint of nettles and greengage – all on a backdrop of Botrytis. There is an intense concentration in the mouth with great balance of all components held together by keen acidity while fynbos honey, toasted nuts and caramel lingers in the background. Super now yet has many years of development to do.

Harvest Description

A cool winter allowed vines to go into proper dormancy. We were expecting a very different scenario with the cool start to spring and early summer which we thought would delay the start of the harvest. Then suddenly, the heat rose in early January and again in early February. However, for the most part, February and March were relatively mild, making for long, slow and very beneficial ripening. What also enhanced quality was the drop in night time temperatures that in some instances was 1.5°C to 2°C lower compared with the average for February. This helped fruit to retain aromas and flavours.

The harvest date was 7th May 2014.
