IT'S ALL IN THE DETAILS

This wine is lush and vibrant with aromas of guava, citrus and green apple. It has a lively palate full of tropical fruit and citrus flavors, and is perfect alongside appetizers and pasta or seafood dishes.

Colour: Brilliant clear with green edges
Nose: Fragrant blend of ripe tropical fruit salad with a hint of citrus and green apple. 
Taste: An abundance of fruity aromas, including guava, paw-paw, melon and kiwi fruit that carry through on the palate. A medium to full bodied wine with a sweet and lingering finish.

Pair with plainly grilled fish, avocado based salads, shellfish and Peking duck.

The grapes for this wine were sourced from vineyards located mostly in the lower Durbanville foothills on the southern slopes, some 250 metres above sea level. The vineyards, grown in dark red soils, yielded approximately 9 tons per hectare, and were harvested from mid to late February between 24° and 26° Balling when the grapes were showing ripe, yellow colours. 

The grapes where harvested at optimum ripeness when the balance between fruit, sugar and acid was perfectly in balance. The grapes where gently crushed with minimal skin contact before the juice was separated from the skins. The juice was cold settled for 24 hours before it was racked from its primary lees and a percentage of the light lees was added again for further complexity. The juice was inoculated with a selected yeast strain to capture the fruity aromas, and fermentation took place at 13° - 15° C for 16 days. Thereafter it was racked from the primary fermentation lees and allowed to mature for another three months on its fresh lees to create a wine with a fuller mouth feel.
