Product Description

Hailing from a mature, close-planted block in the Maple Ridge vineyard near Hahndorf, the fruit was handpicked, fermented in small batches with wild yeast, and matured in French oak. This wine has it all – whole bunch funk, fresh berry flavour and a drinkability that is contagious. Try to stop at just one glass.

“A layered and complex palate with a baseline of fresh earth, brown spice and rosemary. The fruit has a juicy, almost crunchy note that drives the length and interest. Tannin and acid are taut and fit the wines style in terms of it’s racy, youthful exuberence. Don’t be folled it will age too.”
