Tasting Notes

A lively medium bodied wine with complex fruit aromas. A refreshing palate with citrus, melon, grassy and floral notes and long minerally finish.

– Tariro Masayiti

A delicious, everyday white that has medium body and a creamy texture, showing plenty of cooked-apple, lemon and crushed-stone character. Flavorful. A blend of 32% sauvignon blanc, 27% chardonnay, 21% semillon and 20% pinotage. Drink now. Screw cap.

– James Suckling // 91 Points

Bright yellow colour with bright hue. Aromatic nose, ripe melon, raspberries, hints passionfruit, pineapple and hints of caramelized lemon peel. On the palate fine minerality, creamy texture, freshness with fine and ripe acidity, succulent fruit.

– Markus Del Monego // 89 Points

A complex aromatic wine with a refreshing palate expressing citrus, melon, tropical, grassy and floral notes with a long minerally finish.
