Casablanca 2015

A white blend of Chenin Blanc and Viognier.

SOIL

Malmesbury shale, Glenrosa and Hutton. The vineyards are mainly planted in deep red soils in Stellenbosch and the Swartland.

TASTING NOTES

Rich aromas of dried apricot, honey, lemon-lime and hints of vanilla with floral notes. The lively palate offers generous fresh fruit and crisp acidity.

VINIFICATION

Grapes were hand-harvested early in the morning, de-stemmed and crushed before being lightly pressed. Skin contact was limited to 4 hours and the free run juice drained off to settle overnight before inoculation with yeast. The fermentation took place in 400 litre barrels, followed by maturation in French barrels for 9 months.

SERVING SUGGESTION

Grilled fish or roast chicken with herbs.
