This is and exciting new release from Christopher Rawbone-Viljoen.
An aromatic charmer and perfect accompaniment to fine eastern cuisine dishes with aromatic spices. The fruit is harvested from a tiny south-facing mountain block (0.80ha) planted in 2004 and grafted to Riesling in 2011. Situated ±460m above sea level, yields are low due to shallow soils and strong prevailing North-Westerly winds in spring.
An aromatic charmer and perfect accompaniment to fine eastern cuisine dishes with aromatic spices. Expresses pleasing fruit aromas of white peach, litchi and pear. Fruit-forwardness follows on the palate with an abundance of fresh lemon, limes and green apple complemented by good textural viscosity and weight. The linear acidity cleanses the palate, keeping the natural sugars (11 g/l) in perfect balance creating a brilliantly refreshing wine.
