The grapes are trained on bush vines and trellis system vines from Leeuwenkuil vineyards in Paarl and Voor Paardeberg. These vineyards are "Extreme" and the climate has a maritime influence and are very hot.
This produces complex, ripe aromas of citrus and peach, backed up by the faintest sprinkling of fresh thyme and vanilla. The aromas introduce a palate altogether more complex, with rich, more-ish, juicy stone fruit, wrapped up in crunchy, refreshing, grapey acidity. Mouth-filling, delicious and succulent.
