Description

Tasting Notes

“Layered aromas of stone fruit, cashew nuts, jasmine and marzipan abound on the nose. Initially shy the wine opens up considerably. A rich and full-bodied mouthfeel leads to an extended aftertaste with hints of tangerine and mandarin fruits. I am delighted that this wine was awarded 94 points by Tim Atkin MW in his South African Report 2019”.  Johnnie Calitz (winemaker)

Food Pairing

Best enjoyed with roast chicken thighs, cured bacon, buttery prawns and vibrant greens.
