87% Chenin Blanc, 13% Grenache Blanc
W.O. Paarl, Agter-Paarl
Cold fermented in stainless steel tanks with selected yeasts. Kept on the lees with regular stirring to enhance flavor development for five months before stabilization, filtration, and bottling. No oak used. The wine was bottle matured for two months before release.
Opulent and full of flavor, with lots of layers of different aromas and flavours. Ripe citrus flavours are dominant on the palate, but even more pleasant is a lovely floral elegance of orange blossom that makes the wine very pretty. The wine has seen some wood, but oak is very subtle and supports the wine rather than standing out from it and adds a further layer of complexity.
A wonderful bouquet of tropical and citrus fruit aromas on the nose with a subtle hint of orange blossom. The fruity orange aromas develop into luscious blood orange flavours and sweet ripe naartjie on the palate with a lingering note of orange sherbet. The mouthfeel is incredible as the wine explodes on your midpalate and lingers on into a very long finish which lingers with orange blossom flavours.
This wine pairs perfectly with cheese, salads, or Asian cuisine.
