Chenin Blanc, Roussanne, Viognier, Clairette Blanche and Sémillon come together, from twelve different vineyards up to 50 years old, to form one of the Swartland's finest white blends.
Intriguing, dense nose that suggests there is much more to come. Very rich start - almost Grasmere gingerbread (including the cut peel), a hint of saltiness - and then admirable freshness. (Is this the Paardebosch soil? The Clairette and Chenin?) Very complex with real chew and layers. You could enjoy this already but I feel it will develop too. Great stuff!
