This is an exciting new vineyard venture on a stony plateau between Malagas and Cape Infanta approx. 230km east of Cape Town. Together with a few strategic partners, a small run-down ostrich and grain farm was purchased early in 2004. The potential vineyards are located 60m to 70m above the Breede River, 25 km from the sea by boat and 15 km as the crow flies. At this stage there are no other vineyards within a 40 km radius, the closest being those inland around Swellendam and along the coast at Elim.
Cultivars: 74% Chenin Blanc, 23% Viognier, 3% Roussanne
Bright yellow colour. The Viognier was particularly good in 2015 and we decided to include all of it in our flagship blend. This contributes to the greater richness of the vintage in general. Lovely forthcoming nose of peach pith, lemon curd and spiced honey and a little salty herbal character. Quite full and rich with enough spine to offer good maturation potential. Drink 2017 to 2022.
