In The Cellar

The grapes are placed, whole bunches, into the press. Juice is then extracted and allowed to naturally settle in a settling tank for 24 to 48 hours at 10 degrees Celsius.

The clear juice is then racked to a fermentation vessel, 80% in stainless steel and 20% in older oak barrels, where spontaneous fermentation takes place.

After fermentation the wine is left on its lees for about six months, before the wine is naturally stabilised for bottling.

Tasting

The style of this Blanc de Noir is clean and refreshing and perfect for summertime enjoyment.

Ample fruit, with citrus bursting to the foreground in the form of fresh grapefruit. The mineral lingers on the palate, giving it a beautifully long and dry finish.

Tasting Notes

Experience the refreshing balance of structure and freshness in Blanc de Noir 2023. Grenache lends its floral elegance and fynbos lift, while Pinotage infuses the wine with vibrant summer berries.
