Grapes are sourced from old vines from three vineyards in Stellenbosch, all characterised by their complex soils. Somehow both rich and intense yet elegant and delicate on the palate. Honeyed pear, butterscotch, citrus flavours complemented by a firm minerality and spicy edge. A profound wine that changes perspectives. Food Suggestions: Pairs well with a variety of foods, but we recommend oysters, game fish and Duck L'Orange particularly.

A showy style, with creamed peach, Jonagold apple and Cavaillon melon flavors caressed by hints of sweetened butter and macadamia nut. Drink now.

Straightforward and easy drinking with aromas and flavors of melon, white peach, pear and limey citrus. There's a solid mineral backbone to the medium-weight mouth, leading through to the solid, lively finish. Drink now.
