Can I get away with just calling this lekker? This wine was part of a wine workshop I hosted in August...so I did more talking and listening...and far less writing. But let it be known that this is the type of wine that commands verses of prose professing its virtues.
The beautiful medium gold colour and pronounced nose make promises that it absolutely keeps! Honeysuckle and honey, apricots and peaches, lime lime lime, guava peels, orange peel and sticky marmalade, dried pineapple, sultanas, and all the baking spices.
Lusciously sweet, high acidity, full bodied, and with a loooong finish
Vini + Viti:

Lekkerrr! It was a treat to have an excuse to indulge in this wine and share it with a few winelovers.
