Contemporary wines celebrating traditional South African cultivars and the re-introduction of the Percheron to work the vineyards. Percheron is a breed of French heavy horse traditionally used when many of these prized old plots were first established – they are now enjoying a resurgence in South Africa as their hooves are gentler to the soil and surrounding vines.

This wine is made of 75% Chenin Blanc and 25% Viognier. Grapes are grown on 30+ year old trellised Chenin and 15 year old Viognier. Part of the Chenin Blanc is wild yeast fermented and kept on the yeast lees for as long as possible in order to achieve a long, juicy and rounded palate with a crisp fresh finish.

The wine is vibrant and aromatic with delicious subtle perfumed aromas with white peach and hints of jasmine on the nose. On the palate it has tight, white, fleshy stone fruit and fresh apricot flavours that balances the sandy texture. Bright acidity and minerality helps to deliver a delicious flavoursome and characteristic wine.
