Description

This wine is a delicate and sweet wine with notes of pineapple, marmalade and honey on the palate and delicate ­oral perfumes on the nose. The subtle mouthfeel and lingering aftertaste contains the perfect balance of fruit and citrus acidity.

Winemaking Notes

The Viognier grapes were meticulously selected and harvested by hand. On arrival at the cellar, further hand selection and sorting of the grape bunches was done. Destemming was followed by 24 hours of cold maceration and thereafter the fruit was pressed several times to extract the highly concentrated juice. After settling, fermentation occurred in both stainless steel tanks and 225-litre French oak barrels (20%) at 16°C. This process took three weeks until the desired sugar/acid balance was reached. Fermentation was stopped by ltration and the wine was then chilled.
