Tasting Notes

“Bright and vibrant on both the nose and palate. This wine shows concentrated aromas and flavours of dried apricots, ripe oranges and honey. Hints of white floral blossoms add complexity to the nose. The richly textured palate is supported by crisp acidity with a long lingering aftertaste. Grapes for this natural sweet style are sourced from a single block. This is a wine which is best served well chilled.” Johnnie Calitz (winemaker)
