100% Estate grown: 80% sauvignon blanc and 20% semillon gris.
Planted on sandy soils by the Franschhoek tasting room. Fermented in old oak and aged for just under two years in new and old French oak.
A rare find at this pice point, a complex and textural white Bordeaux blend; chamomile, grapefruit and greengages greet you on the nose.. Lilac and bergamot, developing on to the palate finishing with pineapple, honeydew melon with some herbaceous notes and a racy oyster shell acidity on the finish. Like a great Bordeaux Blanc from Graves, this will benefit from a little time in bottle, and will surely develop beautifully in the next few years, taking on more weight and those sought after notes of lanolin and baked apples.
