Description

Tasting Notes

“Due to the oval design of the concrete Nomblot eggs, the wine is moved constantly in a vortex during fermentation. This action adds a great quality dimension to unwooded wines as the lees is continually moved, naturally. With well-balanced acidity, this crisp fresh wine delights with peach and pineapple undertones.” Johnnie Calitz (winemaker)

Food Pairing

Enjoy with fresh grilled prawns or fish, salmon fishcakes, vegetable terrine or chilled tomato soup.
