The colour is pale, with a beautiful green apple tint.
The nose shows ripe green apple, apple blossom, beeswax and fynbos honey notes. The palate is crisp and clean – lemon sorbet-like.There is a great interplay between the naturally retained residual sugar and the acidity.Generally regarded as restrained,it displays typical Riesling ‘nervousness’.
The mineral core,wich is linked to the shale rich soils in which the vines grow,astounds. It is the reason for the wine structure and the lingering after taste.Perfect hot weather wine – very refreshing.
