Tasting Notes

Not strictly a white wine - made with skin contact, so a lovely pale amber. 85% Chenin with 8% Semillon and 7% Colombard. Griddled apricots, peach kernel and earl grey tea with a splash of lemon barley water on the palate and peach cobbler. Gently chalky and long in the mouth, finishing with lots of ripe grapefruit. We can imagine it would be superb with crudo or ceviche - and a v good intro to skin contact wine overall.

More Info

We firmly believe that Adi Badenhorst is the most exciting winemaker in South Africa. He is also the most frustrating. His laid back, self-deprecating, playful manner keeps you guessing and makes you wonder whether he has any idea what he is actually doing, whether he just chucks some grapes into a vat and hopes for the best, but we know full well that there is a huge amount of expertise that goes on behind closed doors, when no one is around to witness his skill and diligence ...and spoil his reputation!
