This wine is a full bodied wine with honeysuckle and rose petals on the bouquet. The wine is rich and smooth with beautifully balanced sugar and acid that comes from a touch of honeyed botrytis.

|Ageing||1 - 2 years|
|Cellar||Only free run juice was used to ensure a delicate fruit component. Fermentation happened slowly in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks for 18 days at 15ºC.|
Six tons of grapes per hectare were harvested at 25ºB from two vineyards.
|Vineyard||Our Gewürztraminer vines are planted in Karoo soils on well-drained mountain slopes. Vines are planted from North West to South East to utilize the prevailing sea breeze. The sea breeze cools down the fruit, extend the ripening period and build up concentrated flavours in the grapes.|
