Flavours of rich, ripe orange cream are balanced by the zingy freshness of bright acidity and citrus zest notes while providing a supportive platform for the fruit favours to dance elegantly and effortlessly upon, the creamy, nutty oak which is superbly integrated. A refined, balanced and poised wine which drinks well now but will reward patience in cellaring.
Complex nose of fynbos, nettles and buchu. Distinctly herbaceous but not overpoweringly so; it’s tempered by a twist of citrus zest with grapefruit being most prominent.

There is a touch of beeswax on the long tail which hints at greater complexity to come – given time. A wine that is good now but which will reward patience and careful cellaring.

Nothing is superfluous and its perfectly proportioned with a long tail of flavour that ends with a delightfully pithy citrus twist. Will reward patient cellaring.
