Made from low yielding Chenin Blanc bush vines on Aprils Kloof in the Swartland. Matured for 10 months in barrels on the lees and turned weekly to ensure optimal lees contact.
Purity of fruit with alternating layers of summer fruit, preserved kumquat and citrus peel. Tempered oak from seasoned barrels, a fresh line of acidity and waxy minerality compliments the mid palate, giving the wine a lovely balance. The finish is long and dry with a spicy twist.
