The fruit for this wine was sourced from 10 diverse blocks each picked at different times to vary the sugar and natural acid of the grapes. Each small batch was vinified separately until the final blend was decided on. Distinctive citrus characters, green apple and pear notes are evident on the nose and palate. The extended elegant aftertaste is supported by crisp acid, finely grained tannins and soft spice notes.” Johnnie Calitz
