Vintage 2017 presented a low yield, but fortunately turned out to be a high quality happening. The summer weather pattern was decidedly dry, a situation which impacted in supporting a modest harvest. These mild conditions culminated in a quality vintage that helped set the foundation for a high standard and fine wine expectations from 2017.

in the cellar : The Riesling grape offers a solid frame to this blend where its content is 60% of the cuvée. This noble white wine variety is an unusual contribution to a Cape white blend but it does assist in establishing a singular personality to the wine. Add to this a 20% Viognier component and its exclusivity profile is further enhanced. These grapes were pressed whole bunch and clear juice was fermented cold where the eventual wine was left to evolve on the primary lees until blended and prepared for bottling.
