2017 Vintage: SOLD OUT

Total Production: 400 bottles
Wine of Origin: Stellenbosch – 13.5% vol.
Sommelier-Winemaker Collaboration with Alex Starey, Keermont Vineyards
Tasting Notes: Rich, Braeburn apple and pear drop intensity on the nose. Peach blossom and a sherbet tang combine together to provide a decadent but structured finish.
Winemaking Notes: Each cultivar was harvested and treated separately, each with its own barreling regime – some in old 500L French Oak, some in new, some in smaller 300L and 225L barrels of different ages. All components were naturally fermented and left to go through malolactic fermentation. A selection of these barrels were selectively thieved from, in order to create this specific expression of what was harvested from grapes on the estate.
