Grapes are sourced from the Piekenierskloof, approximately 80km from the west coast. Unirrigated bush vines are planted in deep sandy soils. Elevated sites have a warm climate with cooling evening winds. Grapes were harvested on two picking dates. The earlier pick provides freshness and acidity. The second pick lends structure, body, and added concentration to the wine.
In keeping with our philosophy of minimal intervention winemaking, Grenache Blanc grapes are whole bunch pressed and allowed to spontaneously ferment. Maturation takes place on the lees in two clay amphoras, one concrete egg, and one seasoned 500L oak barrel.
TASTING NOTEAn alluring nose of orange blossom perfume is followed by white peach and a spicy hint of pickled ginger. Delicately structured and crisply dry on the palate, the soft and refined fruit follows through onto the palate, showing peach ice tea, citrus fruit and a hint of caramel, that is rounded off with an elegant floral finish.
