Quince, poached peach and a whiff of vanilla on the nose. The palate is fresh, offering up the peach and quince fruitiness but with a lovely lime tang and vibrance. All of that is offset against a gentle background of creamy oak – which is subtly but beautifully integrated with charming vanilla and butterscotch notes. Textured and long, nothing Is overplayed with impressive harmony, palate weight and genuine refinement. Rewarding aftertaste.

Vineyard / Terroir / Climate The Riebeeksrivier farm is situated on the slopes of the Kasteelberg, overlooking the Swartland towards the iconic Table Mountain. Its unique terroir, especially the Rhône-like shale soils, expresses itself characterfully in the wine with unique varietal characteristics. Two bushvine vineyards, planted in 1988 and 2013 on south facing slopes at elevations of 350 – 400m above sea level, yield fruit of great intensity and flavour balanced by bright acidity and length.
