Highly concentrated yellow fruit flavours are perfectly framed and carried by harmonious ripe acidity. On the palate, concentrated ripe citrus and peach from the Chenin. Charming layers of apple and lemon curd from the Grenache while the rich Sauvignon Blanc adds depth and complexity. The finish is long, with slight phenolic edges supporting the fruit through the entire lenght of the wine.

Grapes for the premium blend were hand selected from granite soils with elevations 200-400m above sea level. The grapes from 30+ year old vineyards, have small bunches that ripen with a good concentration of fruit.
Different batches of grapes within the vineyard blocks were selected by hand in mid Feb between 23-25 balling. Grapes were picked into small crates and immediately chilled. The grapes had extensive skin contact (24 Hours) to ensure the best fruit flavours were extracted from the skins and to ensure ageing potential. The Chenin was then fermented in second and third fiull French oak barrels and left on the lees for 14 months before blending. The Grenache Blanc fermented in very old barrels before blending and bottling.
