Vinification / oaking details: This unique wine is the first white wine blend in South Africa to have Verdehlo as a blending component. All the components – 40% Viognier, 40% Verdelho and 20% Sauvignon Blanc, of this wine were fermented separately before blending. The Viognier and Verdelho fermented in 20% 1st fill, 40% 2nd fill and 40% 3rd fill 300lt French Oak barrel. Kept on it’s fermentation lees for 8 months, batonage two times a month. The Sauv.Blanc component was fermented in stainless steel tank, from the Darling ward sourced – no wood treatment on this component, kept on it’s fine lees for 8 months. Tasting notes: This wine has a pale straw colour. Floral and tropical aromas on the nose with hints of Sauv.Blanc characteristics own to the Darling region. Vanilla and honey oak aromas compliments a well balanced, quite full bodied wine with an amazing long zesty finish. Food suggestions: Enjoy this wine with wild mushrooms risotto, foie gras terrine or pork belly roasted in a wood-fired oven.
